WebAdvisor will re-open on Tuesday, May 2. Add cards will also be available on May 2. Please use Add cards to register (if the instructor grants permission) for:

  • courses that are full
  • courses that have restrictions you do not meet (e.g., FR/SO only)

Students may register for up to 18 credits at this. Students will be able to register for up to 20 credits with no special permission, and up to 21 credits with the permission of your advisor, and 22 credits and above with the permission of your advisor and the registrar/ Overload forms will be available at the beginning of the Fall 2017 semester in August. Credit/No Credit cards will be available at the same time.

Please note that an Add card does not override a general registration hold (e.g., no advisor approval or a financial hold).
