If you drop a course within the first 20 percent of the semester, you will not be charged tuition for the course and the course will not appear on your academic transcript.

I have a Drop/Add form that has been signed and stamped by the department, giving me permission to add a closed "R" class. Can I use Web Registration to add the class?

No. The form must be processed in person at Trojan Hall 101. Registration staff will need to create an additional seat in the class and ensure the seat is given to you.

I have a Drop/Add form that has been signed and stamped to add a "D" class and the department tells me I have D-clearance on the system. Can I use Web Registration to add the class?

You should check with that department to make sure they have increased the class size to accommodate you. If they have, you can use Web Registration to add the class.

What can I do if I need to take these classes together but they conflict?

Students must obtain permission to enroll from the instructors of the conflicting classes. You can download and print the Conflict Form. Students must submit the completed form in person at the REG Building.

I made my schedule a while ago, but now when I tried to register my classes are closed. What do I do?

  1. Click on Add Section to myCourseBin
  2. Click on the myCourseBin tab on the navigation bar.
  3. Click on the Schedule link for the course.
