ADDING AND DROPPING PROCEDURES FOR FALL 2013:
Adding courses on the portal is not allowed after 9/9/2013.
Beginning 9/10/2013: Course additions need to be processed in person with paperwork listed below and there is a fee.
1) COURSE OVERRIDE FORM with the instructor’s signature and department stamp (even if the class appears open).
2) REGISTRATION (Add/Drop) FORM listing each class you wish to add.
Note: The registration form must be signed by an advisement dean only if you are on probation or you have an alternate PIN*
*New first year students and some first semester transfer students will need an alternate PIN to add or drop classes. You were given your PIN on your yellow copy of advisement notes when you registered. If you do not have your PIN, an advisement dean can look it up for you.
(Absolute last day to add a course with permission from instructor and department is 9/30/2013)
“Dropping” a class in your portal is allowed through OCTOBER 1st without a grade of “W” appearing on your transcript. **
Beginning OCTOBER 2nd, (even though you can still use the portal) a “drop” is considered a WITHDRAWAL and a grade of “W” will be recorded on your transcript.
** Students on probation need an advisement dean’s signature to drop/withdraw from a class.
It is in your best interest to meet with an advisement dean before making schedule changes.
How to Find Your Dean and Make an Appointment
Students may find their assigned advisement dean by doing one of the following:
- Reading the top of their degree audit
- Looking on their portal - Go to Hofstra Online, click on Student Records, then click on View Student Information.
- Calling either advisement location and asking, "Who is my advisement dean?"
Please call or stop by your dean's office to schedule an appointment. (Schedule well in advance of your registration date if you would like to plan your next semester!)
Appointments are scheduled on the half-hour between 9 a.m and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. on Monday and Thursday.
