Add or Drop Courses

You can use the Add/Drop period to make adjustments to your schedule such as adding or dropping a course, switching sections, changing grading options, and much more. Please review the instructions below before making changes to your schedule.

Note: The following information does not apply to Outreach College courses (i.e., summer sessions and extension terms).

Add Courses

Review the Academic Calendar for specific Add dates and deadlines for your student classification. To add a course, follow the instructions outlined under Registration Step-by-Step.

After the semester begins, if you are enrolled in only one UH Mānoa course and wish to replace it with a different course that meets at the same time, or switch to a different section of the same course, you must process this change in-person by submitting an Add Form (PDF) and a Drop Form (PDF) to the Office of the Registrar. However, if you want to replace your course with a different course that does not meet at the same time, you may process your change online by adding the new course first, then dropping the original course. You will be charged according to the chart of tuition and fees and credited according to the refund schedule.
