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 (e.g., September 9, 2016 for Fall 2016) or spring term (e.g., January 27, 2017 for Spring 2017) 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 (e.g., November 4, 2016 for Fall 2016) or spring semester (e.g., March 17, 2017 for Spring 2017) 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.
