Add/Drop Deadlines

Students are responsible for their classes and should not expect others to complete registration actions for them.

Students may register for classes either by using their student portal myPugetSound or by submitting a completed Registration or Add/Drop Form in the Registrar’s Office.

Note: A student registered for more than 4.25 units (or 4.75 units including at least .50 unit of activity credit) in the fall and spring terms is subject to a tuition overload fee unless the overload is alleviated by the second day of class. For details concerning tuition refunds, see the "Refunds and Adjustments" section of the university Bulletin or visit Student Financial Services on the Web. 

Fall 2016 Add/Drop Deadlines

Continuing students may begin registering during registration week (April 4-8). Continuing, returning, and transfer students may register during open registration (April 18- August 18, 2016).

Each undergraduate student must be individually advised before registering. After meeting with their advisor, the student must be have their Advisor Registration Meeting hold released. Alternatively, the advisor may sign a Registration or Add/Drop Form that the student can take to the Registrar's Office to complete the registration process.

After initial registration, a student may add or drop courses and advisor permission is not required.

Although a student may not add a closed class, a student has the option of wait-listing a closed class. The wait-list is ordered by the date and time a student is added to the list. If a seat becomes available in a closed class, then that seat is reserved for the first student on the wait-list and the student will be notified when registered from the wait-list.

August 29, 2016 is the first day of classes for the Fall 2016 semester and is the beginning of the Add/Drop Period.

The last day to add a class is September 6, 2016. From August 29 - September 6, the wait-list provides information to an instructor on students who were interested in the class. Because the instructor has control of class enrollment as of the first day of class, the instructor may, or may not, decide to add an additional student and may consult the wait-list before selecting an additional student to add. To authorize a student to add a class, the instructor provides the student with an Add Code that the student uses to register for the class online or the instructor signs an Add Form for the student to process at the Registrar's Office. The last day to change your grade option or add a course as an auditor coincides with the last day to add a class.

The last day to drop a class without record is September 12, 2016. From August 28- September 12, a student may drop a course without the course being listed on the student's transcript and the student does not need the instructor's permission to do so.  To drop a course during the drop without record period, the student may sign-into the student portal through their myPugetSound account to use the Registration function or the student may visit the Registrar's Office to complete and sign a Drop Form.

The last day to drop a class with an automatically assigned "W" grade is November 4, 2016. From  September 13 to November 6 a student may drop a course and automatically receive a "W" grade. The student must have the instructor's acknowledgement to drop a course as indicated by either an email from the instructor or a signature on a Drop form.  The student must bring the email message or signed form to the Registrar's Office.

The last day to drop a class is December 7,  2016. From November 5 - December 7, the student must have the instructor's acknowledgement to drop a course as indicated by either an email from the instructor or a signature on a Drop form.  The student must bring the email message or signed form to the Registrar's Office. A student who drops after November 4, is subject to a "Withdrawal Failing" (WF) grade according to the faculty's withdrawal policy.
