Instructions for Adding/Dropping a Course for Fall 2020

You should be able to add/drop a course for the Fall 2020 semester online if you follow the timeline as indicated above.

If you experience a registration error or you missed the timelines mentioned, you may need to fill out a Registration Add/Drop form. Please read our section on how to edit a PDF virtually as well as our page on How to Submit a Registration Add/Drop Form.

 

Submission Requirement: How to Edit PDF Documents Virtually

Please note: All documentation needs to be in a clear and readable .pdf format. Pictures of forms taken with a cell phone are not acceptable and will be returned to students.

To create .pdfs, use a free desktop/mobile app to convert images of the form to PDF (e.g., PDFelementScanbotSimpleScan (for Android only), Office Lens). These apps scan documents into PDF files. If you have an Apple iPhone, you can scan and sign documents using the Notes app

Existing .pdfs can be edited/saved/signed with Preview (Mac) or Dochub. If you have questions about this, please contact your Success Coach or CASA: casa@usfca.edu.

These forms can then be emailed to casa@usfca.edu. Please submit all your completed documents in ONE EMAIL.
