Beginning the 6th day of the fall/spring semester, the 1st day of summer/winter session, or the 1st day of any off-cycle course that begins within the regular session, students may request to change hours online by obtaining required authorizations. In most cases, the online hours change process replaces the paper add forms or email requests used in previous sessions. 

Online Hours Change Notifications

Every morning at 5:00 a.m., emails will be sent to departments with a list of students who have pending hours change requests that have not been authorized by the department (or instructor) during the previous 24 hours. Emails will be sent to a registration email monitored by departmental administrator(s). Please check with your department to determine who is responsible for managing these requests.

Please Note:

When a student initiates a registration change, they are instructed to reach out to the instructor of the course to request that the registration change occur.

  • Instructors can only authorize or deny hours changes for students in sections they are assigned to.  

  • Instructor Authorization = Departmental Authorization, and visa-versa. If an instructor authorizes, the departmental administrator does not need to. 

Courses which allow Multiple Section Registration will work with online hours change requests.
