    You may wish to drop classes from your schedule to make room for new selections. Click on the Drop tab at the top of the page.
    1. Select the class(es) you want to drop and then click 'DROP SELECTED CLASSES'.
    2. Confirm your selection and then click 'FINISH DROPPING'.
    3. Review the results page to verify your classes were dropped successfully.
    Important Note: Undergraduate degree-seeking students may drop courses from their registration but cannot remove the last remaining course (a course with minimum of 3.0 credits). If you chose to completely drop your schedule, new students must contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
  • Swap Classes

    The Swap feature allows you to replace one course already on your schedule with another without having to drop the first one. This is especially helpful when you only have one course on your registration that you want to replace. Click on the 'Swap' tab at the top of the page:
    1. Select the class you want to swap from your schedule and search for the replacement class.
    2. Confirm your selection and then click 'FINISH SWAPPING'.
    3. Review the results page to verify your classes were swapped successfully.
    Caution: The Swap function cannot be used to replace a 2-course COL 150 learning community already on your schedule with a new one. This is because the Swap function can only process one course swap request at a time – and learning community pairs must be registered together from your shopping cart. Please Drop your existing 2-course learning community first and then register for a new 2-course pair.
