Overview

Any changes to a student's schedule must be completed by the Drop/Add period deadline as published in the Academic Calendar.

Schedule Adjustments may only be requested due to University error. 

Schedule Adjustments may only be initiated by an Academic Advisor. 

See Understanding Parts of Term as the submission periods and deadlines below are based on the requested course's Part of Term.

All requests must be submitted during the second week of classes to the Office of the Registrar.


The Office of the Registrar will review these Requests for Schedule Adjustment and approve or disapprove depending on the individual circumstances. Depending on the type of request, additional information may be required.

Instructors and Department Chairs MUST approve ALL LATE ADD requests.

Students whose adjustment increases the total number of credit hours of enrollment or whose fees increase are required to pay the balance immediately in order to avoid the $100 late payment fee. 

Requests for Schedule Adjustment MUST have a Reason for Request on the form before submission.
