If you need to add or drop credits after the semester begins, it will be
much easier if you can do it before the add or drop deadline. If you do it
before the deadline, you can make the change via SIS. After the deadline,
you'll need to complete a
Form. When completing this form,
you'll need to:
- Submit a Plan
of Study which includes any credits you are adding and does not
include any you are dropping. (If you already have one on file which is
consistent with the registration change you are trying to make, you
don't need to submit a new one.)
- For course credits, you should include a note from the course
instructor about your attendance and progress.
- For research credits, you should 1) complete the
Registration Form, and
2)include a note from your
advisor describing your research and academic progress, and
explaining why you are making a late request.
- Terry Hayden can obtain the Graduate Program
Director signature on the Plan of Study and the Late Add/Drop
form, and then she can send all your documents to the Office
of Graduate Education.
- The Office of Graduate Education will review your file,
and will not approve the late add/drop until any other issues are
taken care of. For example, if you have a doctoral student review
form on file which says you planned to take your
candidacy by a date which is now in the past, they will check
whether you have taken it.
