Swap Classes - Download video transcript here

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.
