On the 5th class day, the waitlists will no longer be active and the late add process will begin. For the Fall 2022 semester, the late add process will be conducted online via Qualtrics survey. Students can fill out the survey below to try and late add into a course. This survey will be available 8:00AM CST on the 5th class day. Students will need to fill one survey per course that they are trying to late add. C S majors and non-C S majors/Elements students. If students are wanting to try and late add multiple courses or different sections, they will need to fill out a new survey for every request. 

Students may not access the survey before the 5th class day

The survey will automatically time stamp each submission. We will continue to operate on a first come, first-serve basis if space becomes available in courses. If a seat opens in a course, we will attempt to add the first submission in the survey. We will continue the process until the course fills again or up until the 8th class day. Please note that it is up to the discretion of the professor to decide the last day that late add forms will be processed for their course, or if they will be processed at all. 

You will be contacted via email if you were able to be added to a course. We will not give information about your position in the queue for courses, so do not ask.

Please keep in mind that the late add process does not guarantee a seat in the course; it is another opportunity for students to potentially be added if a seat becomes available.
