Registration and Records Notes for Faculty and Staff
NEW online workflow process in My.Butler.edu for adding after
the 5th day of classes.
How does it work?
- 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".
- Student checks the "Request Approval" checkbox.
- 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
