Change Course Period

Minerva does not necessarily prevent students from registering for courses they should not take. Therefore, it is your responsibility to be aware of prerequisites, corequisites, restrictions, and faculty regulations that apply to the courses for which you want to register.

There is a Course Change (Add/Drop) Period during both the Fall and the Winter terms. This allows you to "shop around" for courses which you may be interested in taking but have not registered for. From the beginning of the term until the end of Course Change Period you may attend as many courses as your schedule will permit. You will access Minerva before the Course Change deadlines to add or drop courses. Step-by-step instructions are available on how to add/drop courses via Minerva. All courses are limited by enrolment; therefore, do not wait until the last minute to register.

Courses dropped during the Course Change Period are deleted from your record. Your record will show only the courses in which you are registered after the Course Change Period. If you drop a course within the deadlines for the Course Change Period, you will receive a refund for the course; if you add a course during this period, you will be charged for the course. You will only be charged for the courses listed in your final schedule.

If you are a Freshman-program student, you must have changes approved by an Arts OASIS Faculty advisor.

Courses which are cancelled by the University are not automatically deleted from your record; you must access Minerva and delete the course(s).

If, after Course Change Period, you find that you neglected to add a course, you will need to fill out a Late Course Add form (an online form, login required). The process might also include review/approval from the respective instructor and department - so be sure to read the instructions carefully. Once completed, the form is submitted (electronically) to Service Point. You must be able to explain adequately why you were unable to add the course(s) during the Course Change Period. If your request is approved, you will be charged an administrative fee for each late course add.
