Add Drop Help

After Decisions Are Submitted

After you’ve submitted decisions for an Add Drop form, the student will be emailed a notification of the decision.  The next steps depend upon the type of decision that was entered. 

 

Approved by Instructor

The student and advisor are notified by email of the instructor’s approval and the advisor may now submit a decision.

   

Denied by Instructor or Advisor

The student is notified by email that the change has been denied.  No change in registration for the subject will be made.  If the instructor or advisor who denied the change later decides to approve the change after all they may return to the Add Drop form and submit a new decision. However, if the approver wants to approve the change with a different grading option or number of units than what was originally requested by the student, the student will first need to return to the Add Drop Form and resubmit a request for approval  with the correct grading option and/or number of units.
   

Consult with Instructor or Advisor

The student will receive a notification that a consult has been requested.  The notification will indicate who requested the consult and will include any comments that were submitted with the decision.  After consulting with the student, the advisor or instructor will be able to return to the Add Drop Form and submit an approval or denial.          
   

Approved by Advisor

The student will receive a notification that the requested registration change has been approved.  The  student then must return to the Add Drop Form and submit the approved changes to the Registrar in order for the change to become official.
