New procedures for dropping, adding classes online

As part of the Banner applications released in July, West Lafayette Purdue students can drop and add classes on the Web using the myPurdue portal. New online drop and add procedures (for a 16-week semester) are outlined below.

Students may drop courses during the first two weeks of fall and spring semesters via myPurdue. (Courses dropped during the first two weeks of a semester will not appear on a student’s academic record.)

Beginning the third week of classes, however, they must see their academic advisors and use Registrar Form 23 to request such changes. Once completed (with all required signatures), the form should be delivered to the Office of the Registrar in Hovde Hall (Room 45).

Except for extenuating circumstances, courses may not be dropped after the ninth week of fall and spring semesters.

Students can add or modify courses (for which they already are registered) using myPurdue during the first week of the fall and spring semesters. After that, they must see their academic advisors and instructors, complete Registrar Form 23 and take it to the Office of the Registrar.

Contact the Office of the Registrar:

A detailed chart about these new procedures is on the New Add & Drop Process page of the registrar’s Web site. More information (including step-by-step instructions for the first two items) also are available on these topics:
