Add or Drop Courses - 16 Week Semester

Registration Add Errors                  

Schedule revision is the process of adding courses to or dropping courses from your schedule, as well as changing and/or modifying courses already on your schedule.

You may modify full semester courses (including changing times of sections) during the first week of the fall and spring semesters via myPurdue.  Beginning the second week of classes, you must go to your academic advisor to initiate the request via a Registrar Form 23. After all required signatures have been obtained, the Form 23 should be taken to the Office of the Registrar, Room 45, Hovde Hall. If you wish to modify courses meeting less than the full 16-week term, please refer to the drop/add calendar for those deadlines.

Full semester courses dropped during the first two weeks of the semester will not appear on your academic record. Refer to the drop/add calendar for courses meeting less than the full term.

If your academic classification is 1 or 2, you may drop a full semester course during weeks three through nine, and the course will be entered on your academic record with a grade of 'W.'  If your academic classification is 3 or higher, and a full semester course is dropped during weeks three or four, a grade of 'W' will be entered on your academic record. If a full semester course is dropped during weeks five through nine, the instructor must indicate whether you are passing or failing at the time, and the appropriate grade of 'W', 'WF', or 'WN' (see below for explanation of these grades) will be entered on your academic record. Courses meeting less than the full 16-week term have different deadlines. Refer to the drop/add calendar for those dates.
