In general, students who have already registered may drop or add classes during those days and times permitted by their academic division or department. You should contact your academic division or department for specific information about drop/add and related procedures. You may not attend a class from which you have withdrawn.
If you wish to select the audit or pass/not-pass grading option for a class, follow normal registration or drop-add procedures and indicate audit (A) or pass/not-pass (P/NP) beside the appropriate class(es) on your registration or drop/add form. Regular course fees will be assessed. Audited courses appear on the transcript records of IU students, but do not appear on Purdue transcripts. Shifts between audit and regular credit or between P/NP and regular grading will not be made after the deadline specified in the academic calendar.
Some classes require students to register for both a lecture section and a laboratory or recitation section. You should consult the Schedule of Classes, the online registration system, and your advisor for assistance with selecting the proper combinations.
During the 100% refund period you must complete a drop/add form or submit the change via myIPFW. After the 100% refund period you must submit a withdraw form via myIPFW and follow the course withdraw procedures required by the Center for Student Success and Transitions. You are responsible for following these procedures to record your official withdrawal from a class. If you stop attending a class and do not officially withdraw from it, you will be responsible for any outstanding fees and receive a grade of F or W for that course.
Dropping classes after the withdrawal deadline requires additional approvals, and the transactions must be processed at the Registrar’s office (Kettler Hall Room 107). Before a late withdrawal can be approved, you will be required to provide documentation of the circumstances leading to your request.
If a class in which you are registered is canceled, you are responsible for following official withdrawal procedures to receive a refund. Required drop/add forms are available in your academic division or department and the Registrar’s office. An advisor’s signature is not required to drop a canceled class.
