Enrollment and Student Academic Information Bulletin

Late Drop/Add

eDrop/eAdd - Beginning January 21, 2014

Indiana University uses an electronic drop and add (eDrop and eAdd) process to allow students to request class drops and adds via OneStart. eDrop/eAdd will be available from the second week of classes through the Automatic Withdrawal (Auto W) deadline.

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

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: If you are an undergraduate student enrolled in 12 credit hours or more you will receive the most favorable tuition treatment if the drop and add are initiated on the same day.

GRADUATE STUDENTS: For important information concerning late drop/add for graduate students, see http://bursar.indiana.edu/home/index.php/policies/schedule-adjustment/#grad

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

First eight-week and full term classes dropped after Friday, January 17 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.

Second eight-week courses dropped after Friday, March 14 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.

Courses with non-standard dates will be assigned a grade of W on the day after the 100% refund deadline for the course. See the Non-Standard Session Dates calendar for 100% refund/Auto W dates for courses with non-standard dates for the current academic term.

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 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.

eDrop

To access eDrop, log into OneStart. On the Services tab, select Student Self-Service in the sidebar. Select the Late drop/add classes link.

See Student Central on Union's eDrop Instructions for more detailed information.

Note

  • Dropping classes could result in reduction or repayment of financial aid, and additional tuition charges may apply.
  • Submitting an eDrop request is not a confirmation that the course has been dropped from your schedule.
  • Once submitted, your eDrop request will be routed to the appropriate advisor, department chair, and/or dean for approval.
  • Once approved, your request will be processed and an e-mail confirming that the drop is official will be sent to your university e-mail account.
  • Until you receive an e-mail which says the drop has been approved and processed, or until you confirm via "My eDocs," you are still enrolled in the course. All rules and requirements still apply, and you should continue to attend the class.

Any eDrop not approved or disapproved two weeks after the submission date will be disapproved by the Office of the Registrar.

eDrop/eAdd as a Pair

Using eDrop and eAdd together means that your requests are contingent upon one another. In order for both the drop and the add to process successfully, they must BOTH be approved. If either the drop or the add are not approved, neither request will be processed.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: If you are an undergraduate student enrolled in 12 credit hours or more you will receive the most favorable tuition treatment if the drop and add are initiated on the same day.

GRADUATE STUDENTS: For important information concerning late drop/add for graduate students, see http://bursar.indiana.edu/home/index.php/policies/schedule-adjustment/#gradn

eDrop/eAdd as a pair will be available from the second week of classes through the Automatic Withdrawal (Auto W) deadline (see Official Calendar for dates).

Once submitted, eDrop and eAdd requests automatically route to the appropriate reviewers (instructors, advisors, department chairs, school deans, etc.) where they are able to take action electronically.

Once approved, the request will be processed and notification sent to you via your university e-mail account.

To access eDrop/eAdd, log into OneStart. On the Services tab, select Student Self-Service in the sidebar. Select the Late drop/add classes link.

Any eDrop/eAdd pair not approved or disapproved two weeks after the submission date will be disapproved by the Office of the Registrar.

Please note: Students who submit an eDrop/eAdd pair prior to or on Auto W day and have the eAdd component of the request disapproved after the Auto W deadline may qualify to complete the eDrop request attached to the pair. Qualified students will be notified by the Office of the Registrar one day after the eDrop/eAdd request had been disapproved.

eAdd

To access eAdd, log into OneStart. On the Services tab, select Student Self-Service in the sidebar. Select the Late drop/add classes link.

See Student Central on Union's eAdd Instructions for students for more detailed information.

See http://registrar.indiana.edu/doc/eadd-for-instructors.pdf for detailed eAdd instructions for instructors.

Note

  • Undergraduates may incur additional fees if they do not submit a drop and corresponding add together on the same document or form (whether electronic or paper).
  • Once approved, the date you submit the eAdd request will be the date used to add the class. Fees will be determined based on that date.
  • Adding classes that cause your schedule to go over the flat-fee 12-17 credit hour range can result in considerable financial assessments (Fall and Spring terms only).
  • Submitting an eAdd request does not guarantee that the course will be added to your schedule.
  • Once submitted, eAdd requests automatically route to the appropriate reviewers (instructors, advisors, department chairs, school deans, etc.) for approval.
  • It is your responsibility to monitor the status of your eAdd request. You are not officially registered and your schedule will NOT change until your request is approved and the class is added to your class schedule.
  • If your eAdd request is approved, it will be processed and a confirmation will be sent to your university e-mail account.
  • If there is a problem with your request or additional information is required, you will be notified via your university e-mail account.

Any eAdd not approved or disapproved two weeks after the submission date will be disapproved by the Office of the Registrar.
