What are enrollment changes?

Enrollment changes are adjustments to your course schedule or to course options after you first register. These include adding a course, adding a waitlisted course, dropping a course, or changing your grading option.

How to make enrollment changes

After officially enrolling in a course, you may add, drop, or change the grade option through your online Summer Session account* or by submitting a Course Change Request Form to the Summer Session Office. Be sure to observe the deadline dates listed in the Academic Calendar as deadlines are strictly enforced. Courses may not be added, dropped, or changed retroactively after the end of instruction. Withdrawing or discontinuing your enrollment from UCI at any time does not constitute an automatic cancellation or drop from your summer courses.

Financial Aid students may need to submit a Course Change Request Form by the deadlines in order to make course changes.

*Online enrollment changes will not be available after this deadline: last day to add, drop, or change grade option without approval. Approval is required after this date and before the absolute deadline for any course changes. See Academic Calendar for deadline dates.

Special Programs

Students enrolled in a special summer program have an exceptional process for enrollment changes. Please contact our Special Programs representatives to request course changes.

  • Freshman Edge
  • Transfer Edge
  • International Program – Visiting international students who hold an F-1 visa and I-20 must be enrolled full-time by maintaining a minimum of 6 on-campus units throughout the duration of their stay. Dropping below 6 on-campus units is a violation of F-1 student status.

All standard Summer Session deadlines apply to students enrolled in Special Programs. For special deadlines associated with your program, please contact your program representative.
