Registration and Records Notes for Faculty and Staff

NEW online workflow process in for adding after the 5th day of classes. 

How does it work?

  1. Student will attempt to add a class as they always would through My.Butler. Student receives a message asking if they want to send an approval request to the class instructor, their advisor, and their college dean. Student clicks "OK". 
  2. Student checks the "Request Approval" checkbox.
  3. Student provides an explanation of why they need to add the class after the deadline, and then clicks "Submit". 

The request is electronically routed to the individuals who need to approve the request.  Student will NOT be enrolled in the class until final approval is received from the college dean.  Student will receive "status update" emails as the request moves through the approval process and will receive a final email when the request is either approved or denied.

Faculty Assistance Needed for Accurate Fall Census Counts

Access your Attendance Rosters in My.Butler to identify absent students before September 10

In order to ensure accurate census counts for fall, the office of Registration & Records needs your help to identify students who are registered for classes, but are not returning to campus.  In many cases, students do not communicate their intention to withdraw, which overstates census.

Before Wednesday, September 10, please report to Angie Clayton ( any students who are not attending your class and who you believe are not on campus.   Please note that students will be adding classes through Wednesday, September 3 and dropping classes through Wednesday, September 10. As such, please report only those students not attending your class due to leaving campus and not those students dropping your class and replacing it with another.

Instructions for accessing and printing your class rosters can be found via the My.Butler Help links at  

Wednesday, September 3, 5:00pm - Last day to add a class for credit (Fall)

Wednesday, September 10, 11:59pm - Last day to drop a class (Fall)

Thursday, September 11, 8:30am - Fall Census processed
