An overview and step-by-step guide to request an add or change to a course after the deadline has passed.


Overview:

Online Course Change Requests are used to request a change to a course after the deadline has passed for the following activities.
Additional permission or approval is required for the request to be processed.

You must SAVE and PRINT the request. If you are saving more than one request, each request will need to be printed separately.
Once appropriate signatures have been obtained, you will need to submit the Course Change Request to your academic dean’s office for final approval.

Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, academic deans’ offices are being flexible in their requirement of printed or hand-signed requests. Please reach out to your academic dean’s office with any question regarding the submission of the form.
We recommend communicating with your academic deans using your wisc.edu email address and including your campus ID number when you are reaching out. To confirm whether a Course Change Request is the appropriate tool for the action, see Enrollment Actions - Dates & Deadlines-Based Grid.
