According to university policy, students who wish to take credit hours in excess of 18 (fall/spring semesters) or 9 (summer semester) must have approval from their college.
If you’d like to request an override for more than 18 (fall/spring) or 9 (summer) hours, you’ll need to discuss this with your academic advisor. Please note, your override for a credit increase will not be granted if your record contains any of the below:
Schedule revision is the process of adding, dropping, or modifying courses already on your schedule. You may modify full semester courses during the first week of the fall and spring semesters using Scheduling Assistant. Beginning the second week of classes, you will need approval to add a course. You can request approval through Scheduling Assistant by adding the course. Please consult your academic advisor when revising your schedule.
Full semester courses dropped during the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters will not appear on your academic record.
Schedule revision dates for summer sessions adjust according to the length of each course.
The add/drop calendar will show deadlines based on the current term and are searchable by length of course (8-or 16-week for fall or spring). The calendar also shows when a W or WF will be on your record after dropping a course. A W or WF will not factor into your overall GPA but do count in the 3 time enrollment policy of Purdue.
Students can use the waitlist feature for a full class in Scheduling Assistant. You can find out more information here on how to use this function.
