Adding a late class?

Yes: If you want to add a class after it has already started, you will need an online registration override from your instructor. Instructors can submit overrides online which will then allow you to register for the class via MyPCC. Late registrations must be submitted completed within two business days after the course drop deadline. As an example, for 8-12 week classes, the drop deadline is the first Saturday of the term, therefore you only have through the next Tuesday to add courses. Short term courses have less time to add. View Registration Policies for more details.
