Swap or future swap classes

Swap classes

If you are registered in a course but would prefer to be registered in a different course, you can use the swap function. The swap function will drop one class and replace it with another at the same time.

You cannot register for classes that overlap or have less than one minute of time separation without completing the Class Time Conflict Approval.

Future swap classes

If the class you would like to swap with is currently full, you can indicate you would like to be added to the wait list if one is available. This process is called “future swap.”

If a seat becomes available in the wait listed class, you will be automatically registered if you meet all the requirements and will then be dropped from the other class. You will then be charged the associated tuition and fees for the new class that was swapped.
