How can I find and manage my classes?

How can I add a class after the Add/Drop Period is over?

Adding a class after September 15 requires permission from the course instructor for late registration. 

  • Contact the instructor or the department offering the course to obtain permission.
  • Permission must be on departmental letterhead or in an email from an official Rutgers email account.
  • If the course is full, permission must include a special permission number.
  • Log onto SAS Live Chat and share permission form with an advisor, who will assist with registration.
  • Remember: There are NO refunds for withdrawing from a class after September 15.
