How to Obtain an Add Code

Beginning the first day of a credit course, students must obtain an add code before registering, whether the course is full or not.  Even if obtained in advance, add codes do not become active until the first day of the course.

To obtain the add code for an on-site course you may:

  • attend the first class meeting and request the code from the instructor; or
  • email the instructor and request an add code; or
  • call the instructor and request an add code
  • If you missed the first class session, contact the instructor by email or phone to inquire if an add code is still available.

To obtain the add code for a distance learning (online) course you may:

  • email the instructor and request an add code; or
  • call the instructor and request an add code

Be sure to include the name, number, and the specific CRN of the course when emailing the instructor:  (ie:  Math 331, CRN 67890)

Locating the instructor's contact information:

  • Visit the Employee Directory
  • Type the instructor's name
  • Click the email hyperlink or call the extension

When leaving an email or phone message, include your contact information to enable the instructor to return your email or phone call.  If you do not receive correspondence back from the faculty member within 48 hours, you may try again, or pursue another course.

All registrations, including those with an add code must be processed and fees paid by the deadline date to add the course.  To find the specific deadline to add with an add code for each course, select Class Search on the home page, enter the course CRN, and click the blue CRN.  If you miss the deadline date to add the course with an add code, it will be too late to register for the course, even if you have been attending.

ESL Spotlight

Structural Engineer

"I came from Mexico at age17, which meant I not only had to learn English at a High School level, but had to prepare for college-level courses. During my first semesters at AHC I enrolled in ESL, and made extensive use of their writing lab, which I believe was critical in my transition to transfer level classes. Engineering is a difficult major on its own, but learning all those concepts and terminology while just getting out of ESL classes was a challenge. AHC professors, counselors and programs were key to my success."
