Spring 2021 Add/Drop Instructions

Add/Drop will be conducted via Student Planning for Main Campus Undergraduate classes for Spring 2021.

The “Add/Drop Period” is defined as the period at the start of each term when students may drop and add courses to their schedule. The Add/Drop Period will begin on the first day of class. After the Add/Drop Period ends, students may continue to withdrawal from individual courses using the change of schedule form according to dates indicated on the Academic calendar but no new courses can be added.

The Add/Drop period begins on Wednesday, January 13 and ends on Wednesday, January 20. Add/Drop will be conducted via Student Planning in Student self-service. Students will need to have advisor approval to make changes to their schedule in self service.

After consulting with your advisor, check carefully to be sure that no time conflicts appear on your schedule, that the course you plan to add has seats available and that you have met the necessary prerequisites for applicable courses.

Courses are not available to add if they have no available seats. We caution students to always try to do the add function first, if possible, before they drop a section. Once a seat is dropped by a student, it is made available for others to add.

Please be aware that full-time status for Undergraduate students is 12-18.5 credit hours for Fall and Spring. Students are responsible for insuring that any schedule changes do not result in less than a 12 semester hour registration. Dropping below 12 may impact your eligibility for financial aid, veterans’ benefits, international student visas, on-campus housing or athletics compliance. Please contact financial aid, the VA certifying official, international admission, residence life or an athletic academic advisor if you are dropping full-time status BEFORE you make a schedule change.

Note to faculty: The system will remain accessible through Tuesday, January 12.
