Beginning Spring 2020 there is a new add procedure once the semester has begun.  For the first week of instruction, if the class still has space available, a student can add the class on their MyRAM Portal without any instructor permission.  If a class is full and a student would like to request to add the class, follow the same Class Add Request instructions and the instructor will determine if they have space and notify the student if they do.

Beginning the second week of instruction if a student wants to add a class whether it has space or is full,  the student can request to add the class on their MyRAM Portal.  Here is a link to instructions on how to do this:Class Add Request   If the instructor has space in the class for the student they will approve the student to add the course and will notify the student through CCSF email.  The student must then add the class in the MyRAM Portal.
