Academic Affairs

Drop/Add

Drop/Add begins immediately after the windows registration period ends each semester. For explanation and instruction for uses of the ACES registration system, refer to the SISS website at http://www.sissoffice.duke.edu/. Students may make changes in their schedules and add classes where space is available until the end of the first week of classes without the instructor’s approval. During that time they may also add their names to wait lists for courses that are full. At the end of the first week of classes, the wait lists are erased. In the second week of classes, a course may be dropped without approval, but a course may be added only with the permission number given by the instructor. Class lists are available on-line, via STORM, at any time. (During the Schedule Correction period, which is the week after Drop/Add, students may request permission of their academic dean to correct their schedule, with documentation from the instructors; during this period students may not add courses they did not begin attending before the end of Drop/Add.)
