On the first and second day of classes, dropping and adding courses is permitted on a space-available basis only and requires written authorization from the instructor of the added course. Instructors must email their authorization to c2reg@uw.edu.

To drop a course, email c2reg@uw.edu. In the body of the email you should include:

  • Your name
