Adding an Online Class after Open Registration

To add an online course during the add/drop period, you must have an add code. Only students who have already applied for College admission and received their student ID number can add a class.

If the instructor has scheduled an orientation, you may pick up an add code at that time if there is space in the course. With the add code, you can add the course by following the instructions on the "How To Enroll" page.

If you have problems during this process, please email your instructor.

Wait List Information

All online courses use waitlists. The waitlist is in Web4 (where you register for classes). Instructors do not keep a waitlist.

Follow the instructions on the "Wait List FAQ" page.
