Advising Right Now: Registration Changes
Should your advisees find the need to make any registration changes after registration is submitted, they need to heed the following deadlines.
- ADD DATE is Friday, March 6: This is the last day that students can add a class to spring registrations.
- DROP DATE is Thursday, April 23. This is the last day that students can drop a class from spring registrations.
Follow the instructions on the Registrar's site for information about adding or dropping a class.
Ultimately, for the student experiencing academic difficulties, dropping a class can create more time to spend on other classes and hopefully improve overall academic performance. It is always helpful for advisees to talk with you and their advisor before making any class changes.
Any student who misses either Add or Drop Date and needs to add and/or drop subjects from his/her registration must petition the Committee on Academic Performance (CAP). Petitions are available from the CAP website. Petitioning to add or drop a subject does not guarantee that it will pass, and petitions that are approved are subject to a fee. See the CAP website for complete details.
