After receiving a registration PIN from their advisors, students can generally manage their enrollment through MyInfo and CatCourse Scheduler (for more information, please visit the Registration Information website). Sometimes students need instructor approval to add a class. Instructors can authorize an override of a pre-requisite, course cap or time conflict. They may also authorize a student to add their course after the deadline has passed for students to self-add online. To drop a class after the self-drop deadline, students need to consult an advisor. Details on these processes can be found below.

  • To ADD a class when you cannot complete the process through MyInfo or CatCourse Scheduler,contact the instructor of the class you’d like to be added into. To locate instructor information, find the class on the Schedule of Classes in MyInfo.
  • To DROP a class:
    • Start with your assigned academic advisor, unless your department has shared a different process with you.
    • Students must receive advisor approval. It is important that you reach out to them well in advance of the deadline to ensure you have time to complete the withdraw before the deadline.
    • If you have recently changed majors or are unable to connect with your advisor, see the Undergraduate Advisor Contacts website.
      • Graduate students should reach out to their home department to confirm their advisor.
    • If dropping to zero credits after bill confirmation has taken place, fill out the university withdrawal request form online.
