Deadlines

It is your responsibility to know the dates and deadlines for paying fees, adding and dropping courses, enrollment periods, REGPIN availability, etc. The UCR Academic Calendar has all of this information. Not knowing the deadline is not a valid excuse.

Adding or dropping a course after the 2nd week of the quarter?

You must fill out an Enrollment Adjustment Form. This form is available online at myforms.ucr.edu. You will need to know the Call Number for the course you wish to make changes to. If you don't have this information, please look it up on the online Schedule of Classes.
