Undergraduate: Scheduling Classes

Adding Classes

You may add classes to your schedule using online registration from the time your enrollment appointment begins through the first Friday of the semester.

If a course is full and you put yourself on the waitlist and a seat becomes available, you will only be added if the time is still available in your schedule. If you have scheduled another course at that time, you will not be added from the waitlist. The waitlist only functions through the first Friday of the semester, after that it shuts down and will no longer add students. The waitlist still appears after the first Friday, however it is no longer functioning. If you have not been added to the course by the first Friday, you will need to be proactive and contact the instructor to secure a seat in the class.

Dropping Classes

You may drop classes from your schedule using online registration from the time your enrollment appointment begins through the fourth Friday of the semester. After the fourth Friday, you will receive a W on your transcript indicating you withdrew from the course. The last day to drop a course is the 10th Friday of the semester. No course may be dropped after that date unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Reminder on Credit Hours

12 credit hours is full-time, you may schedule up to 18 credit hours, anything over 18 hours requires permission from an academic advisor and will incur additional fees.

Enrollment appointments are set by the Office of the University Registrar early in the semester for the following semester’s scheduling. You will find your enrollment appointment information in your student center on Buckeyelink. It is important to schedule your courses when your appointment begins. If you wait, classes will fill up. Scheduling may be prevented for the following reasons:

  • A hold on your account
  • Financial Responsibility Statement
  • GPA is below a 2.0.
  • Juniors and Seniors must meet with their advisor at least two weeks prior to the opening of their scheduling appointment. 

You can find details on how to complete your Financial Responsibility Statement here. If your GPA is below a 2.0, you must schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.
