      Section Transfer

      Level Transfer

      How to get a section or level transfer:
      1. Confirm that there is space available in the course you plan on switching into before dropping the class you are enrolled in.
      2. Section or level transfers done during the first 2 weeks of class can be done by getting an add code for the class you want to take, dropping the class you are enrolled in, and then using the add code to get into the desired class.
      3. During the 3rd week there are forms that need to be signed by the professor in the class you plan on transferring into, and by the professor of the class you are transferring out of.
