ADDING AND DROPPING CLASSES

To add or drop classes you must go to the Registration Area. A student who is not officially registered or auditing cannot attend classes. Step-by-step tutorials on adding and dropping classes are available.

If a student must drop a class(es), it is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw from the class. Do not rely on an instructor to drop you.

Registering/Adding a Class

Priority Registration to Friday before Class Begins No instructor authorization is required. If a class is closed, you may add your name to the waitlist. If space becomes available the waitlist will automatically send notification to you at the email address on your student account. You will have 72 hours after notification to complete the registration process. If you are unable to register in that time frame your name will be removed from the waitlist.
1st day of class to last day to add You will need an add authorization code from the instructor. The last official day to add 18 week (full semester length) classes is 14 calendar days and for 9 week courses it is 7 calendar days.

Wait List

Once a class is closed, students may add their names to the waitlist until the waitlist becomes full or until the Friday before the class begins, whichever occurs first. If a student drops the class, creating an opening for enrollment, the first student on the waitlist will be sent an automated email with information regarding the deadline by which registration must occur. The student will be allowed 72 hours to login to the web registration system and add the class. If the first student does not successfully add the class within 72 hours, the student will be deleted from the waitlist and the next student will be sent the automated email. If students miss the 72 hour period in which registration may occur, they must login and add their name back to the bottom of the waitlist. It is the student's responsibility to monitor their email and resolve any issues that may block registration before the 72 hour period expires.

The waitlist process will continue even when the college is closed. Notification will go to students automatically. After the class begins, only instructors can add students into their classes. The instructor must issue add authorization codes to allow students to add the class. Instructors are encouraged to give priority for add authorization codes to those students who are on the waitlist in the order they appear. Students who are still on the waitlist should attend the first day of class to obtain an add authorization code if they are allowed in the class by the instructor. Students, who were unable to add their name to the waitlist because of the waitlist being full, are encouraged to attend the first day of class. If space is available, an instructor may consent to allowing the student to add by issuing an add authorization code. The integrity of the waitlist will be kept intact at all times. Students will not be registered into a full class, even with instructor permission.

Dropping a Class

The specific date for each class is listed under the student's Schedule and Account Information. This can be found by logging into your account. For a step by step tutorial visit www.barstow.edu/register/schdbill.pdf. Keep in mind that drop dates for short term classes can be only 1 day after the start of the class.
