You may enroll into open classes anytime prior to the night before the second class meeting. Exceptions to this policy are online, hybrid and arranged hour classes. If the class you are requesting is closed, please keep trying. If students drop the course, it will reopen and you will be able to add anytime prior to the second class meeting. You may drop a class(es), according to drop deadlines posted in your Corsair Connect account (next to enrolled classes), or verify your enrollment status by web throughout the semester.

You will need to have an Instructor Approval Code to add any section that is full or that has reached the second class meeting.

New Policy: Effective Summer 2016, the self-enrollment of students into the following classes will end the night before the first meeting day for classes that:

  •         meet only once a week
  •          have a lab component – flagged as “Science Lab Course” (e.g., Chem. 10)
