Adding and Dropping Classes


The Registrar’s maintains deadline dates for adding and dropping courses.  Until the Registrar’s deadline, you may add or drop a course online using MyNMSU.

After the Registrar’s deadlines, you will need an Add/Drop Slip and approvals in order to make a change to your course schedule.

Add/Drop Slips are available in the Associate Dean’s Office – Goddard Hall 106.  Be sure to collect all required signatures before bringing your forms for processing!
