What is the deadline for adding classes?

This section gives students information regarding the deadline for adding classes and what permissions will be needed to add a course after a particular deadline.

What is the deadline for adding classes and do I need permission to do so?


Students are able to add classes to their schedule without special permission  through the Student Center module in My UW.   It is possible to add a class by class search or by class number.  Students have until the end of the second week of the fall or spring term to add a class or classes without special permission.   For module courses and summer sessions, you should check the Key Deadlines chart on the Registrar's website.

After the second week of classes, a student has until the end of the ninth week of the fall or spring semester to add a class with special permission from the department.  Once this special permission is obtained, the student then needs to go online to enroll in the course through his/her Student Center module in My UW.

After the ninth week in the fall or spring term, an L&S undergraduate student must obtain the permission of the instructor for the course and an L&S academic dean (110 Ingraham Hall - L&S Undergraduate Academic Deans' Services) before being able to add a course at such a late date in the semester.  

Information on dropping a course can be found on the Registrar's Office webpage How to do it: step-by-step tutorials under add a class by class search and add a class by class number.  Please note that many of the step-by-step tutorials are in Flash format which may not play on some browsers and devices, including many mobile phones.
