How to add or drop a class
Procedures for fall and spring semesters
Adding during first or second week
If the class is open: You may add classes online during the first two weeks of the semester, if space is available and you meet all enrollment requirements. From your dashboard, log into OASIS and add the class in your Student Center. Students registering for the first time on or after the first day of the semester will be charged a late registration fee.
If the class is full: To request to add a class that is full, or that requires permission to enroll, please reach out to the instructor via email for approval to add the class. You can contact them using the campus directory. If an instructor is not listed, please use this list of department contacts.
If your request is approved, you will receive a permission number (add code) via email that you can use to enroll in the class in OASIS.
Dropping during first or second week
You may drop classes online in your OASIS account through the end of the add/drop period. All classes must be dropped prior to term start to receive a full refund of mandatory fees. After the term starts, tuition and fees will be prorated based on drop date.
New students who drop all classes before the add/drop deadline will need to apply for readmission before being permitted to enroll in another academic term. New students are not eligible to request a Leave of Absence.
Adding or dropping after the deadline
You may only add by special exception after the add/drop deadline and all late registration requests are subject to approval. Class instructor and department approvals are required. After the enrollment census date, college approvals are also required. All requests to add classes must be completed (and approvals must be obtained) by the last day of classes for the term. Late Registration requests will be routed via electronic workflow in OASIS. Paper forms will not be used. You will be notified by email of the request status. In order to receive financial aid for a class, you must be enrolled in class by the add/drop deadline.
To drop classes after the add/drop deadline, follow withdrawal procedures and complete a Withdrawal Request form. Students wishing to withdraw from CSUMB after the add/drop period may request to do so for serious and compelling reasons; a grade of "W" will appear on the transcript for all approved course withdrawals after the add/drop period. Failure to follow the formal withdrawal procedures may result in the assignment of failing grades in all courses and the need to apply for readmission before being permitted to enroll in another academic term.
Guidelines for summer/winter and alternative sessions
- Classes in sessions less than four weeks must be added/dropped prior to the start of the session
- Classes in session four/five weeks long must be added/dropped within the first two days of the session
- Classes in sessions eight/ten weeks long must be added/dropped within the first three days of the session
