Withdrawal from Courses

For the most current information, please view the Academic Regulations on our Academic Catalog located on the Purdue University Calumet Catalog webpage.

 In order to officially withdraw from a course, students must submit a properly signed Add/Drop card to the Office of the Registrar. Courses may be dropped only during the first twelve weeks of a semester (first six weeks of a summer session). The following table summarizes the withdrawal policies:
