Adding or Dropping a Class
Classes may be added and dropped online using MyVCCCD.
Outstanding financial obligations will result in a hold being placed on your student records that will prevent all registration, drop and withdrawal activity.
Open classes may be added during registration without an instructor’s authorization.
Adding a Closed Class
1.The first option is to waitlist if seats are open. When a seat opens up and you are next in line to be added, you will receive an email alert giving you an opportunity to register for the class. You will have a limited amount of time to register and pay fees for the class. If you are still on a waitlist on the first day of class and you still want to enroll in the class, you must attend the first class meeting. Once you receive an add authorization code, you must log in to your MyVCCCD portal to drop yourself from the waitlist, then register for the class using the add code.
2. The second option, if waitlist seats are unavailable, is to attend the first class meeting and talk to the instructor about the possibility of adding the class. Understand that priority will go to waitlisted students.
3. In both cases, students who are allowed to add the class must receive an add code from the instructor. Add codes are available during the second week of the semester for full-semester classes. Students who are waiting for add codes are expected to attend all class meetings, and may be dropped if they do not!
It is every student's responsibility to be sure that classes are dropped in a timely manner. Consult the deadline dates on the Registration Calendar page. Students may drop classes online, by mail or in-person. Online drops require that students print and keep a copy of the drop transaction list as a confirmation. Mail drops require that the postmark be on or before the drop deadline. Fees will not be credited or refunded for classes dropped after the Refund/Credit deadline. See the Registration Calendar guidelines for more information.Classes dropped in error may be reinstated; please contact your instructor for a Reinstatement form.
