If you wish to alter your original schedule, whether by personal incentive or by school directive, you must do so officially. If you do not assume this responsibility, you may jeopardize your record with the possibility of incurring an "F" in a course not properly dropped and/or not receiving credit in a course improperly added. Merely not attending a course does not automatically remove the course from your record.
Students are responsible for their enrollment! Effective fall 2006, enrolled students must take action to drop/withdraw themselves from any classes. The University no longer cancels students' classes for failure to settle their account.
Through the first week of the semester *
After priority registration and through the first week of a fall or spring semester (through the second day of a summer session), students add or drop courses online via myUSI using the Add or Drop Classes function. Computer stations are also available in the Registrar's Office for students who need assistance with the online schedule change process.
Beginning the second week of the semester *
Online schedule changes are not available beyond the first week of a fall or spring semester (beyond the second day of a summer session). Beginning the second week of a fall or spring semester (beginning the third day of a summer session), students must complete either an Add/Drop form (if dropping and/or adding classes that will leave the student still enrolled in the semester/term) or a Withdrawal form (if dropping ALL classes for the semester/term).

If you have any questions about the Add/Drop or Withdrawal process, contact the Registrar's Office for assistance.
* Courses meeting other than the standard length have different drop/refund/grading dates. Refer to the refund schedule or contact the Registrar's Office with questions; 812-464-1762 or 800-467-1965 (#3). Online add/drops or withdrawals for special length courses can only be processed through the course's 100 percent refund period (but no later than the first week of the term/second day of a summer session, whichever comes first). Thereafter, students must submit an Add/Drop or Withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office for processing.
Transactions must be completed by 4:30 p.m. (Central Time) on the final day of any registration, add/drop, withdrawal, or refund period.
