Schedule Changes

Biology students needing a schedule change AFTER the Adds & Drops period (first two days of each semester) has ended may contact the Biology department for assistance.  No schedule changes will be granted after the census date/official reporting date (see Important Dates & Deadlines for specific dates).

Before reaching out to the Biology department for assistance students should:

  1. Know the section number, course synonym and instructor for the course they would like to add; and
  2. Contact the instructor (of the class to be added) via email and request permission to be added to their class.

After step 2 is completed, students can send forward the email granting permission to Linda Gonzalez via email at or provide it in person at the Biology department office (Highland Campus, suite 2344).

After the instructor’s approval has been received, the schedule change form will be filled out for the student.  Students must pick up the form within 24 hours or that opening may be given to another student.  The student must then submit the form to Admissions & Records for processing and make payment or payment arrangements by 5:00 p.m the same day.  If payment or payment arrangements are not made by 5:00 p.m the student will be dropped from the class and we will not repeat this process to add you back into that class.

NOTICE: Due to lab safety considerations there are NO OVERLOADS into full sections. No exceptions.
