Changing Sections of a Course

Students may request to change to any open section of the same course until the last day to drop the course with a "W." Acceptable reasons for changing sections may include class conflict with work schedule, childcare, transportation, or health issues.

To change to a different section, the student must:

  • First, discuss their situation with the instructor teaching the course section in which the student is currently enrolled to determine if accommodations can be made. 
  • Speak with the appropriate department chair for assistance with changing course sections, if the instructor does not believe a reasonable accommodation can be made.
  • Present a letter from their employer verifying a work schedule change, or other official documentation regarding qualifying reasons, to the appropriate academic department chair for approval.
If the change is approved, the student will forward the approval form, with the department chair's signature, to the office of registration.
