6) Late Change Ddln
Late Change Ddln
TODAY Friday April 28th is the last day to make a Late Change to Class Schedule.
Everyone gets two chances only to make a late change.
Use them wisely.
Dropping a class because you are getting a B or even a C is not a good use of a Late Change.
Here's more info.
If you do decide to make a Late Change, do it early today.
Do not wait until 11:59pm to get on the system because sometimes the system overloads/glitches and you won't be able to complete the transaction. The College does not care after the deadline that you experienced technical difficulties. They do not accept appeals after the deadline.
Don't even ask.
