New add-drop deadline, effective fall 2018

Dear students,

Effective fall 2018, the deadline for all undergraduate students to add and drop classes will move to Wednesday of week four of the semester.

The fall 2018 deadline to add and drop classes will be Wednesday, September 12 at 11:59PM PT. This deadline applies to all courses not on the Early Drop Deadline list.

The deans made this decision to improve the student experience. The new deadline will increase students’ chances of enrolling in the classes they need: seats will open up early enough for eligible waitlisted students to enroll and succeed in their classes. Also, classes will stabilize earlier, which means that faculty and students can settle in to teaching and learning earlier, and there will be less disruption to group work.

On Thursday and Friday of week four, departments will be adding students from waitlists to fill vacated seats, so make sure you drop yourself from the waitlists of any courses you no longer wish to take, prior to the Wednesday deadline.

Details on this new policy can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s website under the “How Do I Add/Drop A Class” tab.
