How to Add a Class

Adding Fully Online Classes

If you wish to enroll in fully online classes, you will need to meet with an Admissions & Records staff member on Cranium Café, or in-person at the Student Services Center. Find open classes.

Adding In-Person and Hybrid Classes

Until the second day of class, you can add in-person and hybrid classes using the SIS Student Portal. After the second class meeting, you will need to get a permission number from the instructor to be able to add the class. Please contact the instructor for a permission number.

Officially Enrolling with Permission Number

Use the SIS Student Portal to enter the permission number on or before the add class deadline to be officially enrolled.
