Some closed sections allow you to add yourself to a Wait List. Wait lists are allowed at the discretion of the department that offers the course.  Generally, it is unwise to wait list for courses without also enrolling in a full-time schedule; there is no guarantee you will be promoted from a wait list into the class.

Confirm your schedule by logging in to Gibson online at the beginning of each semester.  Confirmation verifies that you will attend Tulane University for the upcoming semester, but does not prevent you from making additional schedule changes, subject to the deadlines published in the academic calendar. Failure to confirm registration will result in the cancellation of your registration.

You may add and drop courses from your schedule until the deadline published online in the academic calendar.  Keep the following in mind when adjusting your schedule:

  • Gibson online will neither allow you to drop below 12 credit hours (the minimum full-time load) nor exceed 19 credit hours (the normal maximum) unless special circumstances apply and your academic advisor has overridden the limit.
  • The minimum number of credit hours required for a Newcomb-Tulane College degree is 120, with some degree programs requiring more.  Thus, to complete a degree in four years, you must take an average of 15 credit hours each semester.
  • Be sure to know your foreign language placement. You may only register for the level of a foreign language in which you have official placement, or for which you have completed or are currently enrolled in the prerequisite course.  You must have placement for any foreign language you take, even if you have never studied it before and plan to take an introductory-level course.
