  • Add another course from those that are recommended or from your alternate list.
  • Contact your advisor for assistance in selecting another course.
  • Seek an override. To find out more about this, please see Overrides & Overloads.
  • For deadlines to make changes in your schedule, please see your “My Weekly Schedule” on RAMweb . The add, drop, and withdraw deadlines for each course are listed beneath the course title. Use this information along with the course information provided by the online search options.
