When You Can Add

You can add classes to your schedule during these times:

  • Your assigned enrollment dates
  • The schedule adjustment period (fall registration only)
  • The open enrollment period

Under special circumstances, you may be allowed to add a class after open enrollment ends with permission from the instructor and/or your department (requirements vary by department). Late adds are typically only approved if the class has space available and you've been attending class regularly.

Please note that late-added classes may affect your financial aid eligibility and tuition and fee bill, and you will not receive COF funding for the class unless the registration delay was due to university error.
