Course Capacity

For reasons of public safety and instructional quality, course enrollment in each section will be limited to the approved classroom capacity. The Office of the Registrar monitors course enrollments throughout the quarter according to the following guidelines:

  1. Through the first seven calendar days of a quarter, a student may add a section without permission unless the class is full or requires permission; then an add code is required. Beginning the eighth calendar day, add codes are required to add any course. The registration system will accept course overloads up to 115% of classroom capacity to compensate for expected course drops.
  2. The registration system closes for course adds at the end of the Late Add Period.
