How to Use Course Swap

How to Use the Course Swap Tool in Axess

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

Note: Course swap enrollment changes are subject to Final Study List deadlines See the Academic Calendar for details.

Step 1: From Axess Student Center, click on ‘Enroll’

Step 2: From the Enroll tab, click on Swap

Axess does not allow undergraduates and graduate students 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.
