In relationship with the university, we maintain a set of policies designed to ensure a standard and equitable experience for all students. Below we’ve outlined policies specific to the Daniels School of Business, but please visit the University Regulations website to learn more about policies for all Purdue West Lafayette students.
Students will be contacted by their Daniels School of Business advisor each semester to schedule a registration appointment. If you unable to attend your appointment, you must cancel your appointment as soon as possible.
If you arrive later than ten minutes for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule.
Most students will need to complete lower division requirements before enrolling in upper division courses. Please review the Requirements for Upper Division for specific requirements for your major.
If you fail to initially meet the minimum MAI/EAI, you will have additional opportunities to meet the minimum MAI/EAI requirements.

*Your most recent (not best) earned grade will be used to calculate your Admissions Index. Once a letter grade in a course has been earned at Purdue West Lafayette, you cannot use transfer credit for the same course when calculating your MAI/EAI. Your Purdue West Lafayette grade will be used in the MAI/EAI calculation.
If you exceed the retake policy, you will be allowed a registration PIN for one additional semester of enrollment in the Daniels School of Business after which you must CODO to another major. A registration PIN will not be given to you after one semester of enrollment upon exhausting eligibility for Upper Division.
Transfer credit may be used for your MAI/EAI requirements. For students who start at Purdue, the Daniels School of Business requires that you take at least 3 of the 5 or 6 (depending on your catalog term) MAI/EAI courses at Purdue, or a minimum of 2 of the MAI/EAI business courses (MAI: MGMT 20000 & ECON 25100; EAI: ECON 25100 & ECON 25200).
If you are transferring in courses for your MAI/EAI for a given term, you must have your transfer credit sent to Purdue within one week after grades have posted.

Target grade distribution for Daniels School of Business Core courses will culminate in a 3.0 GPA average. This average would be calculated each semester for an individual instructor teaching one or more sections of a core course. The target grade distribution for elective courses culminates in a 3.3 average GPA. Known exceptions to these targets should be discussed in advance by the Management Policy Committee.
Honors GPA: In November, 2019, the MPC approved an exception for all Honors sections at an average GPA of 3.3, the same as for elective courses.
