How to register: Before the class starts, you can register using the campus registration system. If the course is full, it is sometimes still possible to make room for a few more students. Simply email the instructor directly requesting permission to add the class.

Note: Second half semesters allow two days for schedule adjustment. In order to avoid using a career drop, be sure to drop the class by the second day of the second half semester. If you enroll in the online courses that begin late in the semester, you must contact the Registrar's office for assistance by the first or second day of the class to drop it without using a career drop.
