Pre-Registration Add/Drop Procedures

The Pre-Registration Period (prior to the first day of instruction) is when students can log in to myCCSF Web4 Portal 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 to the class you want to attend with your registration ticket. If there is space in the class, you will be given a 6-character alphanumerical 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 myCCSF WEB4 Portal or in person by filling out an ADD/DROP form and processing it with the Registration Center, MUB 130.

 

You may drop or withdraw through myCCSF WEB4 Portal (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.

 

Please visit Important Dates to view the class schedule for important deadlines dates.

  • 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.
