Reasons to Sign Add/Drop Forms

  • Waitlisted/Closed courses
  • Time Conflict (requires signature from both instructors)
  • Prerequisites that the student has not completed (for CAS students only)

SBS faculty may not override prerequisites. Students must obtain the following approvals:

When overriding course capacities, it is important to refer to your waitlist to monitor enrollment and room capacities.
