Registration changes must be submitted to the Registrar by 11:59pm on the specified last day for each action.  To allow time for the approval process, it is recommended that you request approval for registration changes well before the deadlines. At a minimum, each approver should be given at least 24 hours to enter a decision. 

After the specified deadlines, requests for registration changes must be made by petition. A $50 processing fee will be charged for permitted changes. Undergraduate students petition the Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) and graduate students petition the Office of the Dean of Graduate Education (ODGE).

See the Academic Calendar for specific dates.
