Be sure to review the guidelines about drop/add below, check out the Registrar’s website for more details, and utilize the Video Guide to Drop/Add for a guided demo of the system from a student’s perspective.

- Please do so even if you have holds.
- You can follow-up with the holds after you’ve enrolled.
- All course enrollments require instructor approval.

- You can approve advisees’ course enrollments via WesPortal.
DROP/ADD REQUEST LIMIT
- In addition to the ranked drop/add requests submitted during pre-registration, students can submit a max of six unranked course requests. (Students can submit multiple sections of one course.)
- Once a student reaches the limit of six, the “Add to My Courses” button no longer appears for courses in Drop/Add. An outstanding request will need to be canceled to submit an additional request.
- Students can confirm their schedules during the drop/add period.
- Once a schedule is confirmed, no additional requests can be submitted and courses cannot be dropped.
- If additional changes are required, a student can un-confirm their schedule.
- For Instructors, in course management, students who have confirmed their schedules will be marked as such and can no longer be added to the class list.
- The student would need to un-confirm their schedule to allow you to accept them into the class.
- For more details about a confirmed schedule, visit our drop/add page.
POLICY OF THE EPC ON THE FIRST CLASS MEETING
- Per EPC: “unless registered students attend the first class meeting or communicate directly with the instructor prior to the first class (in writing, by email or in person), the instructor can drop a student from his/her class list.”
Please let me know if you have any questions about the drop/add system.
