Late Adds

No student will be admitted after the last day of the Add period without special permission. No course may be added to a student's schedule after the Add deadline without the approval of the instructor of the course and the department head/program director.

 

The student is responsible for obtaining all approvals and presenting the completed Late Add (PDF) form to the Office of the Registrar, Holmes/Hunter Academic Building. Please bring a photo ID. 


Effective Spring 2014, all currently enrolled students who wish to late add a course after the withdrawal deadline for the current term must not only complete the late add form showing the approval of the instructor and department head but must also submit the following:

  • a letter from the student explaining the request for a late add;
  • a plan of action from the instructor explaining how the student can complete the course by the end of the term; and
  • a letter from the Dean to the Registrar providing an extraordinary justification for supporting the late add.
     

All required paperwork should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar. Students may appeal the decision of the Office of the Registrar to the Educational Affairs Committee.

Late Add requests for a term that has officially ended must be approved by the Educational Affairs Committee.

When is Drop/Add?
Review the Academic Calendar for exact dates and times for a given term and given course level.

I attempted to drop a course during the drop/add period but I had a flag on my record preventing me from doing so.  What can I do?
