Thinking of making changes to your schedule?
Keep in mind these important considerations:
- Degree and admission timeline for your major. Meet with your advisor to discuss the impact of adds and drops on your academic progress.
- Add / drop deadlines. See the Official IU Calendar to find out when a grade of W starts and when the Auto-W deadline is for each academic session.
- For Spring 2020, the Auto-W deadline for Full Semester courses has been extended to Sunday, April 5 for University Division and Students in Transition students.
- Email your advisor if you have questions about deadlines for Spring 2020.
- Financial aid. Will a dropped class or W grade cause you to lose financial aid? Stop by Student Central on Union to find out.
- Bursar fees. How much will that add or drop cost? Will you end up paying high fees? Or extra tuition? Read about Schedule Adjustment Fees and Fees for Late Drop/Add.
- Visa status. International students should learn about enrollment requirements for their visa and consult with the Office of International Services when considering schedule changes.
- Full time status. Do you need to stay full time for athletics? Scholarships? Visa status? Or your parent's insurance? See instructions below on finding open 2nd-8-week classes.
- Important considerations before withdrawing. Considering withdrawing completely from the university this semester? See the page on withdrawal from all subjects
