Adding

For Regular Semester Classes (17 week classes): Students are encouraged to register for classes prior to the beginning of the semester. If a student registers for a class after the first day of class, the following time limits and processes apply:

Time Period Process
Week One A student may add a class without instructor approval (unless the class is closed).
Week Two/Three A student may add a class at the discretion of the instructor. (The instructor must sign the add form)
Week Four A student may add a class after completing a petition which verifies attendance prior to week four and is signed by the instructor and the Vice President-Instruction.

Note: The above timeline does not apply to summer session, short-term, and late-starting classes. Please check with Enrollment Services for appropriate dates.

Drop Dates

For Regular Semester Classes (17 week classes):  The dates for dropping classes before receiving a "W" or a "Letter Grade" are as follows:

Week Four Last week to drop a class without posting a "W" on record. See Academic Calendar for more information regarding dates.
Week Fourteen Last week to drop a class without a grade. See Academic Calendar for more information regarding dates.

Note: The above timeline does not apply to summer session, short-term, and late-starting classes. Please check with Enrollment Services for appropriate dates.

Some students (EOPS/SSS and/or athletes) must have a counselor signature before dropping.
