Adding a Class After the Add/Drop Period:

Contact to the instructor or the department offering the course to obtain permission.
Permission must be on departmental letterhead or in an email from an official Rutgers email account.
If the course is full, permission must include a special permission number.
Log onto SAS Live Chat and share permission form with an advisor, who will assist with registration.
