Adding Courses and Waitlisted Courses

Adding Courses

Deadline to Add Courses


Online Courses:

There are no late adds for online courses.


Classroom Courses:

If you wish to add or enroll in a course after applicable session has begun, it is strongly recommended that you attend the course and speak to the instructor before you complete the enrollment process. While the deadline to add/enroll in courses is two weeks after the start of instruction, it is not a guarantee that you can successfully complete the coursework.

To add a new course, look at the section below that applies to you:

International student infoVisiting international students seeking information about enrollment changes should visit the Enrollment Changes for International Students page.


Waitlisted Courses

Summer Sessions courses fill on a first-come, first-served basis. Once enrollment for a class reaches its limit or fills its assigned room, a "waitlist" is opened. This is a list of all students waiting to enter the class if a space becomes available. Students on most waitlists are automatically enrolled in order, as space becomes available. In some cases, the instructor’s signature may be required to be enrolled from the waitlist.



You will not be charged to be on the waitlist for a course, but if you are automatically enrolled in the course you will be charged. It is your responsibility to check CalCentral for your waitlist status.

You should remove your name from a waitlist by dropping the waitlisted course if you no longer wish to remain on the waitlist, or if you have not been enrolled from the waitlist before the deadline to receive a refund.
