Course Search & Enroll - Enrolling/Editing Variable Credit


An overview and step-by-step guide to enrolling in variable credit courses, and editing selected credits in an enrolled course.


Some courses/sections are configured as variable credit, which allows you to choose the number of credit you would like to enroll in.
Selected credits will be available within the range indicated in Course Search & Enroll.

Variable credits can be edited after enrolling in the course.
Changes are made using Course Search & Enroll until that term's relevant deadline. After the deadline has passed, editing this option will require additional permission and will be done using Course Change Request.
Check the related dates and deadlines to determine whether to use Course Search & Enroll or Course Change Request.
