Late Change of Registration

Students should use this form when needing to request a change to their registration, specifically adding and/or dropping a course. This form should only be used if the deadline for dropping and adding courses for the desired term has passed. If the deadline for dropping and adding courses has not passed, use the Change of Registration Form. Since this change is occurring after the change of registration deadline, the requesting student must demonstrate that the request is based on circumstances beyond the student’s control.

With this form, a student may request to:

  • Add or drop a single course
  • Change the number of credit hours registered for a single course
  • Change the section for a single course

Be aware that you may be charged a late fee for this change, and you may be charged additional fees as a result of a change in credit hours. Contact the Bursar’s Office for details.
