Late Registration Request Student Guide

Relevant to: Students, staff, faculty.





The Late Registration Form is used to request registration additions or changes after the add/drop period for a session, and should only be needed in extenuating circumstances. You may use this form to add a class or exchange one class for another session in a term with the same start date (example: sessions A & B have the same start date). This form is not used to withdraw from a course.



In order to complete this form, you will need the course registration number (CRN) for the class you want to add. You can locate the CRN by searching for the course in the Term Guide. The CRN is located on the left column of the search results.

*Note* If you are registering for Educational Planning, a totally individualized study (TIS), or a just in time study (JIT), you will receive an email with a CRN for the class. If you have not received this email, please reach out to your mentor.


If you are requesting more than one addition or exchange, you will need to submit additional requests.
