Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin

Late Drop/Add

Beginning August 28, 2017

Student Central on Union - 408 N. Union St. (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.)

Note: Students who are dropping all classes (including those enrolled in only one class) must follow procedures for withdrawal from the university.

Late fees:

A late schedule change fee will be assessed for each class dropped after the first week of classes. The late schedule change fee also applies to a class number (section) change, a change of arranged hours, or a credit/audit change.

Waiver of the late schedule change fee will be considered only when it can be clearly demonstrated that the university, through one of its offices or officials, is directly responsible for the late drop/add activity.

Grades

Classes dropped after Sunday, August 27 will be assigned a grade of W through the last day for an automatic grade of W (see Official Calendar); thereafter, a grade of W or F must be assigned by the instructor.

After the automatic withdrawal period, a student may withdraw only with the permission of his or her dean. This approval is normally given only for urgent reasons related to extended illness or equivalent distress. Students should check with the office listed below under Late Drop/Add Forms Distribution for their school’s policy.

Note: A student who is found to have committed an act of academic misconduct while enrolled in a class and is assigned a grade of F by the instructor as a result of the misconduct will have a grade of F entered in place of the automatic W which would otherwise have applied. A grade of F recorded as a result of academic misconduct will be subject to the same procedures as if the student had not attempted to withdraw from the class.

Fee Payment

No payments will be due nor any refunds made until the next monthly bills are generated. If the drop/add activity produces a credit balance on the student's account, a refund will be directly deposited to the student's chosen financial institution. Bursar refund checks, for those not participating in the direct deposit program, will be mailed to the student at the student's housing or local address on file with the Office of the Registrar. (Use the Personal Information app at One.IU to maintain accurate addresses.)

Please refer to the Drop/Add Policy for graduate and undergraduate students in the Financial Information section of this bulletin.
