How Do I?

How Do I?

Before you add or drop courses, please contact your academic advisor. The change may be simple and straightforward. However, your advisor can let you know if there are details or implications you were not aware of.

View our Guide to Common Questions about Schedule Changes

How you change your schedule will depend on whether MyUI is open for registration changes or not.

You can usually make schedule changes on MyUI before the 6th day of the fall or spring semester (1st day of summer term). However, you should check the academic calendar to make sure, and contact your advisor with questions.

Pick one of these to get started:

Begin by scheduling an appointment with your academic advisor. Before the meeting, read and complete Preparing for Advising Meetings items.

Meet with your advisor and discuss questions, plans, and any concerns for the following term. In this meeting, you'll also learn more about the registration approval process. Registration approval is often one of the final advising meetings you'll have in the semester.

Instructors are the best place to being when you are facing academic challenges in a course - whether that is not understanding the material, not knowing how to prepare for tests, or anything in between. Some important things to keep in mind when asking for help:

  • Check your course syllabus for scheduled office hours. If time conflicts prevent you from using those times, email your instructor to arrange a different time.
  • Before you attend office hours, write down as clearly as you can the questions you have. What course topics do you need help with? What have you already tried? Read the Visiting Office Hours guide on Tutor Iowa for more details to help you prepare.

Tutor Iowa is a great place to look for academic support outside of course resources, and it is always available. In addition to searching for resources for particular courses, don't miss these helpful supports:

Contact your academic advisor if you have questions about any of these, or need help finding other resources.

Need support outside of academics? Basic Needs & Support has a wealth of resources that are both categorized and searchable. Food, housing, legal, wellness, and many other resources are available.
