Purpose

Request changes to registration in the current semester when the change cannot be made directly in Class Schedule. These changes include:

  • Correcting registration (e.g., changing sections of the same class; dropping a co-requisite lab section and keeping lecture when permitted by the department).
  • Changing grade type to/from Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory.
  • Changing grade type Audit.

 

Policy

  • Adding a class, or changing sections of the same class, after last day to add according to Academic Calendar is only done by instructor request, typically to correct registration (e.g., move to/from a non-Writing Intensive section from/to Writing Intensive; add a required service learning section omitted in error).
  • See Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Grade Type page for applicable policy.
  • The last day to change grade type to Audit is the same as the last day to drop a class without record according to Academic Calendar. Instructor permission is required for this option.
