Adding/ Dropping/ Changing Courses

What are the deadlines to drop/add/ change?

Students are expected, when selecting and registering for their courses, to make informed choices and to regard those choices as semester‑long commitments and obligations.

The following instructional days refer to Autumn and Spring semesters only.  Due to the abbreviated length of Summer session courses, there are a fewer number of instructional days allowed for adds, drops, and changes.  Please see the Academic Policies and Procedures portion of the catalog or the Calendar page for Summer session specific timelines.

Adding Courses

Through the 15th instructional day, classes can be added one of two ways:

  1. Directly in CyberBear
  2. Electronic overrides granted by the instructor

From the 8th instructional day to the 15th instructional day, classes can be added on CyberBear with electronic overrides (granted by the instructor).

From the 15th instructional day to the last instructional day prior to finals week, all classes must be added using the electronic Course Add/Change form on CyberBear (listed as “Course Add Change Drop” in your Student Profile) (instructor signature required, advisor signature required for undergraduates). $10 fee applies. 

Dropping Courses

Through the 15th instructional day, individual classes are dropped in CyberBear.  If you need to drop ALL classes, please contact the Registrar’s Office.  The procedure will change depending on whether you have finalized your registration bill.

From the 16th through the 45th instructional day, all classes must be dropped on CyberBear (listed as “Course Add Change Drop” in your Student Profile) (instructor signature required, advisor signature required for undergraduates). There is no refund for dropped courses in this timeframe.  $10 fee applies. 

From the 46th to the last instructional day prior to finals week, classes must be dropped on CyberBear (listed as “Course Add Change Drop” in your Student Profile) (instructor and Dean signatures required, advisor signature required for undergraduates).  There is no refund for dropped courses in this timeframe. $10 fee applies. 

Changing Course Section (changing section for SAME class only)

Through the 8th instructional day, section changes can be added one of two ways:

  1. Directly in CyberBear
  2. Electronic overrides granted by the instructor.

From the 8th instructional day to the 15th instructional day classes can be added on CyberBear with electronic overrides (granted by the instructor).

From the 16th instructional day to the last instructional day before finals week, all section changes must be added on CyberBear (listed as “Course Add Change Drop” in your Student Profile) (instructor signatures required).
