Swap Classes

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for how to swap classes through the Manage Classes tile on the ctcLink Student Homepage.

Audience: Students; Student Services staff.

  • Use the course swap option to add the desired course in place of another course being dropped, especially if the courses are offered on the same day(s) and time(s).
  • Students can remove themselves from a waitlist by dropping themselves from the waitlisted section in self-service enrollment within the add/drop period. 
  • Students should remove themselves from waitlists for courses no longer of interest; if not, the waitlist process will place you in a course if a seat becomes available and you are still on a waitlist.
