Students will receive email notices about their enrollment twice each semester; the first week of instruction and during the second week of the semester. Please check your schedule and make any admustments to your enrollment before the add/drop deadline. It is the sole responsibility of the student to add/drop classes before the posted deadlines.
Instructors may drop students if they are absent on the first day of instruction. Contact the instructor if you will not be present the first day but still wish to attend. Being absent on the first day does not automatically drop you from a class. It is ultimately the student's sole responsibility to add and drop classes before the posted deadlines.
Registration after instruction begins is by permit number only. See instructor for space availability and permission to add via permit number. Note: permit numbers may only be used once.
Adding classes at this time is permitted by exception only. See instructor for permission to add via late permit number. Note: late permit numbers may only be used once.
Students who wish to audit a class must obtain instructor permission and fill out an add form(this is a pdf document): http://www.sfsu.edu/~admisrec/forms/regforms/addform.pdf (pdf document) . Bring the signed add form to the Registrar's Office at the One Stop Student Service Center for processing. Note: payment is due whether registering for audit or for credit.
Students may change the grading option from letter grade to CR/NC on their MySFSU account. Note: not all classes are offered for CR/NC. Some majors require core classes to be letter graded only. See your advisor for more details.
You may drop classes via Gator Reg until the posted deadline. After the drop deadline passes, students must file for a withdrawal (see withdrawal procedures below). It is the sole responsibility of the student to drop classes before the deadline.
Withdrawal from the University before the Drop Deadline will drop you from all classes. Use the Withdrawal Card Form at http://www.sfsu.edu/%7Eadmisrec/forms/noindex/wcard.pdf (pdf document) and return it to the Registrar's Office at the One Stop Student Services Center. You will not receive a "W" for any class if you withdraw before the drop deadline. See Bursar's Office for possible refund options. If you drop all classes during your first semester of admissions, you will need to re-apply for admissions for the following semester.
Withdrawal from the University (individual class(es) or semester) after the Drop Deadline must be petitioned using the withdrawal petition(this is a pdf document) at http://www.sfsu.edu/~admisrec/forms/regforms/withdrawal.pdf ( pdf document) . Individual withdrawals must be approved by Instructor and Chair . Complete semester withdrawals will need documentation (i.e. doctor's note) and can be forwarded to the Registrar's Office without instructor/chair signatures. You will receive a "W" on your record for withdrawals.
