Updated June 12, 2023

Graduate and upperclass J.D. Students will be able to add, drop, and waitlist courses from their registration start time through 3:00 PM ET on Tuesday, September 5 for the Fall 2023 semester.

Please keep in mind that registration is first-come, first-served for most courses. For waitlisted courses, enrollment priority is determined by (1) student type (class year/degree program) and (2) the date/time a student joins the waitlist. We anticipate that in-demand seats will fill quickly after each registration start time. Students should plan accordingly and be prepared to register when their registration window opens.

Students may freely drop courses before the last day of add/drop activity without notation on their transcripts (some courses have special add/drop and withdrawal deadlines as noted in the Curriculum Guide).  After the add/drop deadline, course withdrawals must be approved by an academic advisor and are subject to the Tuition Refund Schedule.  A withdrawal notation (“W”) will be posted to the transcript for the withdrawn course.  See Course Withdrawals for the full policy, instructions, and the request form.
