Future swap classes

If you are enrolled in a course, but would prefer to be enrolled in a different course that meets at the same time you can use the swap function. However, if the class you would like to swap with is currently full and has a waitlist available, you can indicate your preferences within the registration system. This process is called “future swap.”

If a seat becomes available in the waitlisted class, you may be automatically enrolled (if you meet all the requirements for the class) for the waitlisted class and would then be dropped from the class that you selected it to be swapped with. You will then be charged the associated tuition and fees for the new class.
