How do I add a class after the term has started?

Through Sunday of the first week of classes, you may add a course in Beaver Hub under "Academics." During Monday-Friday of the second week of class, course adds and other registration changes require both instructor and departmental approval. This must be in an email format and forwarded to You must include your full name and OSU student identification number. Please contact us if you have questions about this process.

Please note: Due to the nature of Ecampus courses, Ecampus strongly discourages students from adding courses after the first week of the term. Petitions to add after the second week of classes take an average of five to seven business days to be processed. You will be unable to access the course in Canvas until the petition has been processed. Ordering books and other necessary course materials will cause a further delay to your participation. This will put you several weeks behind and could severely impair your ability to be successful in the course.

If you need to add after the first week, we advise that you contact the instructor right away to obtain the syllabus and begin completing any coursework that does not require Canvas.
