Schedule Adjustment Registration Period

Schedule adjustment begins after the registration freeze ends for the quarter (the registration freeze is a period of time where no students can make registration changes). During this time, you may adjust your schedule on Schedule Builder by adding or dropping courses, selecting the P/NP grading option for courses, or changing the number of units for variable-unit courses until the deadlines as published in the Academic Calendar.

Schedule Adjustment is available weekdays from 6:00 a.m.-Midnight (PT) and weekends from 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. (PT) during the Schedule Adjustment period. You can enroll in up to 28.5 units during Schedule Adjustment. If you are an undergraduate student and need to enroll in more than 28.5 units, please contact your college Dean's office.

Note: Deadlines for registration actions differ during Summer Sessions, please refer to the Summer Sessions Academic Calendar for deadlines and refund dates.
