NOTE 1: “W’s” (withdraw passing) and “WF’s” (withdraw failing) grades are not computed into a student’s GPA. However, these may still affect your ability to CODO. It's important to know your new major’s plan of study and consult with your advisor.
NOTE 2: “W’s” and “WF’s” count against the total number of USP hours allowed for CODO-in, re-entry, re-admitted, and transfer students. Consult with your advisor before dropping courses.
Summer Course Add, Drop, or Modify:
Summer Courses range in length from 4 to 8 weeks long. Purdue offers three periods of four-week courses, affectionately termed Maymester (May 13 - June 7), Junemester (June 10 - July 5), and Julymester (July 8 - August 2). They are also sometimes called Module 1, Module 2, and Module 3, respectively. These modules have drop and add dates that correspond to their start times. Please check the Summer Add/Drop Deadlines for Four-week Modules to view specific deadlines.
The bulk of summer courses, including those in the mathmatics and sciences, are offered during the Regular Summer Session, the 8-weeks between June 10 - August 2. Please check the Summer Add/Drop Deadlines for Eight-week Sessions to view specific drop and add deadlines.
To begin the withdrawal process, go to the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) in SCHL 207 or call (765) 494-1747. Request a drop-in counselor meeting or phone meeting. The counselor will then walk you through the withdraw process. If you are meeting face-to-face, the counselor may give you the forms to take to the Housing, Registrar, and Financial Aid offices to sign.
Student can withdraw after the last day to drop, but only under extenuating circumstances and with ODOS committee review. Withdrawing this late requires documentation and is usually only allowed in circumstances of extreme personal illness or family emergency. Withdrawal is not guaranteed.
