Graduate students may petition to make changes to their class schedule through the last day of instruction each semester. After the third week of instruction, but before the last day of instruction, you will need to submit a Graduate Petition to Change Class Schedule to your Staff Graduate Advisor. The petition must be signed by your Faculty Advisor before you submitting it to your Staff Graduate Advisor for further processing, which may include a review by the Vice Chair for Grad Matters. The fees for adding and dropping will be assessed automatically to your CARS account. Students must maintain enrollment in a minimum of 12 units at all times.

It is more difficult to petition to change your class schedule after the semester has ended.  However, if you find such a petition necessary, please see your staff Graduate Advisor. Note: This petition’s final approval rests with the Graduate Division Dean’s Office.
