* Some schools do not require the printed form. The Dean will make a decision without it. Please contact Student Services for your school if you have questions.

You must SAVE your request 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. Your Academic Dean’s Office may Rescind the request if the paper form is not received in a timely manner.

A demo of the Course Change Request can be found on the Registrar’s website within the Demos.
