Add Drop Help

Timing of WebSIS and Stellar Updates

After you have completed the Add Drop process and submitted the approved changes to the registrar, your Status of Registration on WebSIS should be updated right away.  The exception is if you are submitting an Add Drop Form prior to Registration Day.  In that case your Status of Registration will not be updated until shortly after Registration Day.

Once your Status of Registration on WebSIS is updated, Stellar should pick up the change within about an hour.  An exception is during the first week of classes, your Stellar class list will include subjects for which you pre-registered, even if you dropped or did not register for them.  Pre-registered subjects will drop off your Stellar access list if you are not registered about a week into the term.
