Change of Schedule

Information regarding registration and/or changes using a Change of Schedule (Drop/Add) process is provided below. Typically, most changes can be made through UAccess Student Center until a specified date.  The change of schedule process is for exceptions and those enrollment requests that need approval of an instructor and/or College or academic unit. To identify when a Change of Schedule and/or a Late Change Petition are necessary, please see the Dates and Deadlines calendar. 

The Change of Schedule Request can be accessed online.

You can also utilize the Change of Schedule Request PDF and Video tutorial to help you navigate the system.

Late Change Petitions for Single Course Drops are also available to students.

Note:  Some departments have elected not to use the online Change of Schedule form for adding classes and prefer to enroll students departmentally.  If your class selection is not available for enrollment in the online Change of Schedule form, please contact the department offering the class for enrollment assistance.
