Late Add Request Information
The first week of each semester is the published Drop/Add period. During this time, students may drop and/or add classes at their discretion, provided there are openings in the courses and the student has met the appropriate prerequisite requirements. If a student wishes to add a course after this published deadline, it is considered an exception to the registration policies and requires several levels of support and documentation.
In order for the student request to be viewed favorably, it MUST be submitted as soon as the exception is noted. Procrastination on the part of the student will negatively affect the outcome of the appeal.
Please complete all of the following steps listed below in sequential order:
1. An appeal letter from you, the student, addressed to the Associate Dean, must be attached to the Drop/Add Form. (Guidelines for composing your letter are listed below)
2. Obtain the faculty member's approval by a signature on your letter or Drop/Add Form for the course being added. In addition to the signature, please have the instructor write a statement to verify that you have been attending the class.
3. If your request is being made after the third week of the semester, obtain the department Unit Head's approval by signature on your letter or Drop/Add Form for the course being added.
4. Bring all materials to the Associate Dean's Office in B4-232 MAK. The request will be evaluated by the Associate Dean within approximately 2 business days.
Approved Drop/Add Forms will NOT be forwarded to the Records Office; students must pick up their forms at the front desk in B4-232 MAK and deliver them to the Records Office (150 STU) for processing.
Keep in mind that all late registrations involve additional fees. You will be assessed $25 for adding a class late. You will be assessed a $50 late registration fee if you are registering for all classes past the posted deadline.
