Registering late or making a change?

It is critical that you make every attempt to finalize your schedule well before the first day of class. If circumstances call for a schedule change, you may be able to register for some classes after the first scheduled day of class. For online, online sync, hybrid and hybrid sync classes, you have until the end of the first day of the session. For face-to-face classes that meet two or more days per week, you have before the second scheduled class meeting to make a change.

If the class appears in the course search as open, you may register for that class. Authorization to register during the later registration period requires department approval. Contact the assistant dean for the required permission to register after the late registration period.
