What is ISAC?

ISAC stands for Instructor Signature to Add a Class.  Submit an ISAC form (Login Required)

ISAC is the NEW ONLINE – and ONLY – way to request an instructor's permission to add a class between the 2nd and 5th class day of the quarter. Note: A paper registration form is still required to drop a class after the 5th class day of the quarter.

Why ISAC?

  • The new online form is designed to save you time and paper.
  • You don't have to track down your instructor for a signature on a paper form and take it to Registration to add a class.
  • Very convenient when you want to add an online/eLearning class, evening or weekend class.
  • ISAC sends your request directly to your instructor by email.

How to use ISAC

The process is easy to use!

  • Complete and submit an ISAC form online.
  • The ISAC notification is sent directly to the instructor.
  • The instructor reviews the ISAC and approves OR denies the request.
  • If the instructor accepts you into the class, an email is sent to you and to Registration, indicating you can be officially added to the class.
  • You and your instructor will receive an email from Registration confirming your class has been successfully added.
  • You have 24 hours from receiving the email confirmation from Registration to pay for your class.
  • You may submit up to four ISAC requests per quarter.

Things to know...

  • If you are receiving Financial Aid, adding classes may impact your funding status.
  • Registration will notify you if there is a problem or block on your student record – for example, an unpaid parking fine.
  • Blocks must be removed by 4:00 PM by the 5th class day of the quarter for ISAC requests to be processed.
  • Submitting an ISAC form does not guarantee you will be added into a class.
  • You will receive an ISAC email from the instructor if you are approved OR cannot be added to the class.
