Can't decide on a class to add to your schedule?

Registration for classes after the course begins is on a space-available basis and will require a late add code or instructor signature. Students may use a late add code to register online.

  • Online registration is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Students may register anytime on or after their appointment date and time up until midnight the day before the class section begins.
  • Short-term class add/drop dates, refund dates and pass/no-pass dates are calculated individually by class based on the specific number of meeting days; therefore, these dates are not included in this calendar.
