Course by Conference [DOC]

The CBC form is to be used for undergraduate and graduate students who need to add an existing course that is offered at a time (or in a format) in which the student cannot enroll. So, for example, there is a time conflict with another required course, or the student needs the course in an “in person” format when the course is only being offered via distance education in a particular semester. Completed/signed CBC forms should be sent to the Education Advising and Student Services office for Dean’s signature and processing.

Drop-Add Form

The late drop/add form is a manual way for students to drop/add an education course past the posted deadline. The signed late drop/add form is used for this purpose.

  • The deadline to add a course is the last day of the first week of classes. After that date, students must have special permission to enroll via the signed late drop/add form.
  • The deadline to withdraw from a course changes each semesters. Students should check the academic calendar for the specific deadline (https://louisville.edu/calendars/academic/undergrad-grad). After this date, students must have special permission to withdraw from a course via the signed late drop/add form.
  • The deadline to change a course from credit to audit is the same as the last day to add a class for the term/semester (see above). The signed late drop/add form is used for this purpose.

The completed/signed late drop/add form should be sent to the Education Advising and Student Services office for Dean’s signature and processing.

Graduate Record Exam (GRE) Self Report Form

This form is used to self-report GRE scores to be used for admissions on "good faith" until official scores are reported to the University. Candidates must have taken the GRE prior to established deadlines.

Independent Study Form [DOC]

The Independent Study form is to be used for undergraduate and graduate students who need to enroll in 1-3 credit hours for a course that is designed for a particular purpose. The student works with a particular faculty member who will be designing this specialized learning opportunity. The faculty member needs to give the course a title (no more than 24 total characters including spaces), and needs to provide a brief summary of the work to be accomplished. Completed/signed IS forms should be sent to the Education Advising and Student Services office for Dean’s signature and processing.

Re-enrollment Form

The request to re-enroll form allows undergraduate and graduate students who have not attended the university in consecutive semesters (excluding the summer semester) to re-activate their enrollment account with the University of Louisville. Students who have not registered for more than two years will be required to re-apply to the university.

Request to Take Additional Hours

This form is to be used only for undergraduate students. Graduate students must see their faculty advisor to process a variance form.

Undergraduate students must request permission to enroll in an overload of credit hours (more than 18 credit hours during fall/spring and more than 16 credit hours during summer). Students must submit the above form to the Education Advising and Student Services office.
