Add / Drop Courses

Students may choose to waitlist a course if it is full. This is done through MyHC and is similar to the registration process.
Students will receive the option to waitlist when a class is closed and must select to be on the waitlist. An automated email will be sent to the student’s school email account when a spot opens in the class. The student will then have 72 hours to register for the course waitlisted. After the first day of class, the student will have 36 hours to register. For more information see our waitlist FAQ page.

Adding Courses

Students may add courses through the first 3 days of instruction of the semester using MyHC. After the 3rd day of instruction, all adds require an instructor’s signature on an add form, and there is a $10 processing fee. Students are not allowed to add classes after the 10th day of instruction. Summer session dates for adding classes are condensed. Please see chart below.
