Add Drop Help

Add drop page (instructors)

Each Add Drop form displays details about the student, a link to email the student, and a link to your WebSIS class list. Click "Show" next to My Notes to add or access notes about the student that only you can see. The "Next Form" and "Previous Form" buttons allow you to navigate through multiple forms.

In the Proposed Changes area of each Add Drop form, instructors will see the changes requested by the student in subjects they are teaching.  To input decisions, click the drop down menu in the Decision column and select Approve, Deny, or Consult.   Select Consult if you want to speak with the student before making a decision. The comments field is optional, and can be used to send a note that will be included in the notification sent when a decision is submitted.  After inputting decisions for all of the requested changes on the form, click “Submit Decisions”. The student will be notified of a Consult or Deny decision. The student's advisor will be notified of an Approve decision.

Note that you may continue to edit the decision you've submitted until the next approver in the workflow has entered their's.

No change to a student’s registration is final until the student submits the approved changes to the Registrar.   Students are advised to be aware of the Add Drop deadlines and give each approver at least 24 hours to enter a decision.
