How To Use Course Swap

Course Swap allows you to add and drop a course at the same time.

Course Swap enrollment changes are subject to Final Study List deadlines. Axess does not allow you to drop below the minimum (3 unit) requirement. Therefore, the Course Swap tool does not work if the resulting enrollment change decreases your total enrollment to fewer than 3 units for the quarter.

  1. From the Axess Student Center, click on Enroll.
