Late Add Petition
For adding classes after the end of add/drop.
Students may add courses until the end of the add/drop period in a given semester. After the end of the add/drop period, adding courses requires the permission of the instructor and is at the discretion of the dean. To request a late add, the student and instructor should complete the Late Add Petition and submit it to the CNS Advising Center (cnsadvisingcenter [at] umass [dot] edu (cnsadvisingcenter[at]umass[dot]edu)) as early as possible.
Please provide a rationale for the late add and consider whether catching up with the coursework is feasible. If the add would result in enrollment over the limit for the term, a credit overload petition will also be required.
