You are responsible for initiating action for your own schedule adjustments and for setting your schedule by the schedule adjustment deadline. Dropping and adding of classes must be done through your SDSU WebPortal account. Check your schedule in the SDSU WebPortal to make sure you are enrolled in the right classes before the schedule adjustment deadline of the session in which you are enrolled.
Start of Registration—Fifth Day of Classes
You can add open course sections to your schedule from your registration start date through the fifth day of classes. On the sixth day of classes, you must join the Wait List for all course sections even if there are available seats. During this timeframe, only faculty can enroll students from the class wait list up until the schedule adjustment deadline. The fifth-day rule applies to fall and spring semesters only. The timeline is different for summer session. Review the Academic Calendars for specific date information.
Be aware, faculty have the option to drop you from their course for non-attendance or lack of required prerequisites through the faculty drop deadline. Not all faculty use this option, so it is your responsibility to check your schedule by the schedule adjustment deadlines to make sure your schedule is correct.
