Retroactive Add Policies
Only students who were not enrolled correctly due to a university error may apply for a request to retroactively add a course to a previous semester.
Students who were not correctly enrolled in classes due to a documented university error may petition to add a class after the end of the semester. This is called a retroactive add.
Students are responsible for registering properly and paying for all credits by the registration and payment deadlines listed on the Registrar’s website. Instructors do not have the authority to add students to courses, and students are always held personally responsible for verifying the accuracy of their own enrollment before the end of the add period. Being waitlisted for a course does not guarantee a student’s subsequent enrollment in that course.
Students will only be considered for a retroactive add due to a documented university error. Reasons NOT considered for retroactive adds include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Failure to enroll officially from a waitlist.
- Failure to add into the course due to a hold of any kind on your account -these may include parking, library, health, and academic holds.
The College of Science Office Undergraduate Academic Affairs office requests that any student who is seeking a retroactive addition of a course provide a written statement and proof of university error as to why the student was not able to enroll into course in question.
