Add a Class

Most classes can be added through the Student Center. Some classes such as classes listed as "Instructor Consent Required" can only be added to your schedule if the department responsible for that class offers a "permission number". If a permission number is not offered, you must register for the class in person at the Registrar's Office.

You can only add classes to your schedule after your enrollment appointment, and after you have entered your Registration PIN. There are several ways you can add classes through your Student Center:

  • Use the add tab from my class schedule.
  • Use the wish list tab from my class schedule.
  • Use the swap tab from my class schedule.

Using the Add Tab in My Class Schedule.

  • To get to the add tab in my class schedule select Add a Class from the Academics menu in the Student Center. (You may get to this tab from any of the my class schedule screens.)
  • From the add tab there are three ways to add a class: Search for Class, Select Class from Wish List, and Enter Class Nbr.
  • Before using any of these functions be sure to check that the correct semester is shown. If you want to add classes for a semester other than the one shown, click on the change term button. Select the appropriate term and click on the continue button.
