Adding & Dropping Classes

First Week of Classes

For the first 5 days of classes in the spring semester, students will be able to drop, add, or change sections or semester hours for courses on myUI. The exception is for courses that have been restricted for all students and have wait lists.

Paper Process (Beginning Second Week of Classes)

The Change of Registration Form allows you to add or drop courses, change semester hours, or change your section. You can fill out the form online, print it out, and once you have it completed and the necessary signatures are obtained, return it to the Registrar's Service Center, 2700 University Capitol Centre (UCC). The form is located on the Office of the Registrar's web site at registrar.uiowa.edu. The form also is on myUI.
