Engineering Students – Last Day for CODO papers is Friday, Dec. 5!

If you are seeking to CODO into First-Year Engineering for Spring and are currently taking or finishing the CODO requirements (this now includes ENGR 13100 OR ENGL 10600 OR COM 11400 OR an engineering-approved general education course), please make sure TWO copies of your CODO papers have been turned in to ARMS 1300 by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, December 5. 

A CODO meeting is also required prior to the end of the semester.  Sign up for a meeting here:  Very few seats are left and you may have to skip a class in order to attend.

You do not have to wait until your meeting to turn in your CODO paperwork.  Contact your EXPL Advisor soon to have that paperwork created for you!

Waiting Lists Open Dec. 3

Waitings Lists will open in MyPurdue at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 3rd.  Hooray! They will close at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 9, 2015.

Keep in mind that waiting lists are only available for single-part courses (like MGMT 200) and select linked courses that have only one lab, recitation, or PSO section connected to it – a one-to-one correspondence between course parts. As a quick reminder, when looking up a course in myPurdue, if you see a red flag next to the sections, it is a multi-part course. If a linked course has multiple lab sections (like CHM 115), it is not available for wait listing.

For excellent step-by-step waiting list instructions with screen shots, please refer to this page: You may need to log on with your Purdue Career username and password.  Further information and a FAQ are also available within myPurdue under the “Help/Navigation” tab.

When space opens up in a course, the first person on the waiting list will be sent an e-mail to their Purdue e-mail. That student will have 16 hours from the e-mail’s date stamp to go into myPurdue and register for the class. If the student does nothing, the chance expires and the next person on the waiting list is contacted to claim that space.

Some things to remember:

    • Make sure that the section (CRN) of a course you choose to wait list works in your current schedule and has no pre- or co-requisites that you don’t already meet. If you don’t know how to find out this information, please let your advisor know ASAP and they will explain how.
    • You cannot wait list yourself for multiple sections of the same course. However, you can put yourself on a waiting list for multiple, different courses (one CRN per course).
    • Students who have a hold will not be able to register for or waitlist any courses. If the hold is incurred while the student is on a waiting list, the course cannot be added until the hold is cleared.

“Ghost Spaces” warning:

    • If there is a number 1 or greater in the “WL Act” column, it means that a) the course is wait listed and b) people are already in line for the course.
    • This means there is NO actual space in the class, EVEN IF IT SAYS SO IN THE “REM” (spaces remaining) COLUMN.
    • If there is a space listed in the “Rem” column, it’s because it’s being held for the first person on the waiting list who then has 16 hours to add it to their schedule.
    • PLEASE do NOT drop your space in a section in order to add another section until you are absolutely sure there is no one waiting for that section. If you drop a section and it gets snatched up by someone else, it’s gone.

If you have questions about waiting list, read the attached instructions and then contact your academic advisor.
