Add/Drop Procedure

Pre-Registration Add/Drop Procedure

The Pre-Registration Period (prior to the first day of instruction) is when students can log in to Web4 and register for classes prior to the semester starting. Please refer to the Registration Page for instructions on Registration using Web4.

Add/Drop Procedure

The Add/Drop procedure starts on the first day of instruction for the semester.  To ADD a course, go the class you want to attend with your regisration ticket. If there is space in the class you will be given a 4 digit authorization code (ADD CODE) from the instructor. Once you have this code and the 5 digit CRN number, you can complete the add procedure by using WEB4 or in person by filling out an ADD/DROP form and processing it with the Registration Center, Smith Hall room 118.

You may drop or withdraw through WEB4 (Monday - Saturday, 9:00 AM to 11:45 PM) commencing with the first day of instruction or you may come in person to the Registration Center. If you have registered for a class but no longer attend it or have never attended it, you must drop or withdraw from the class. If you wish to drop a class with no notation on your permanent record you must initiate a drop on or before the deadline for full and short term length courses. Click here to view the class schedule for important deadlines dates www.ccsf.edu/schedule/. Students are liable for all fees for courses dropped after the published deadline dates.

Students are responsible for class prerequisites, academic calendar deadlines, services information, and registration procedures.

Classes with different start or end dates may have different add, drop, or refund deadlines.

 

Use the following percentages to calculate deadlines for classes that meet for more or less than the full term:

If the class meets for 10 meetings or less, the class must be dropped prior to start of class to be eligible for a refund.
