WALK-IN OR APPOINTMENT
Advisors are available by appointment or on a walk-in basis.
When do I need to make an appointment with MY ADVISOR?
- To register for classes
- Discuss registration or academic issues
- Discuss graduation audit
- Discuss personal issues
- Discuss Study Abroad
YOUR advisor may have Walk-In advising times during the week. You may utilize these on a first-come first-serve basis to see YOUR advisor. Walk-in appointments are meant to help you discuss quick issues or problems (taking less than 10 minutes) with YOUR advisor.
YOUR advisor is typically available the first 2 weeks of each semester on a WALK-IN basis. You will not be able to make an appointment until the 3rd week of the semester.
Stop by the advising office to schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor or make an appointment on Katalyst.
BRING YOUR PLAN OF STUDY FILLED OUT. Fill in the courses you have taken and are currently taking. Come prepared to talk with your advisor (i.e. if you have class questions, know some options). We recommend writing a list of your questions so you remember to ask them all.
*If you need to change your appointment, cancel your scheduled appointment and make a new appointment.
We, in the School of Management, think email is a great way to communicate information to you and is the method we are using to be able to get an official answer to a quick question. Each advisor has an email address and we try to answer our email as soon as possible within business hours. During busy times (semester start-up or registration) you can expect it to take longer for us to reply. If you need an immediate response, it is better to stop by the Advising Office, KRAN 352 - but if you have already emailed regarding a certain matter and then stop by the office, we will not respond to the email regarding the same matter.
Purdue University has given each of you your own @purdue.edu email address. This is Purdue’s official communication and verification address. Most main offices on campus will not respond to another email address, your Purdue account is the only address that gives us verification of the sender. If you have questions or trouble with your account you can get a lot of information about correcting those errors on the Information Technology at Purdue (IT@P) website http://www.itap.purdue.edu.
Your advisor will only send emails to your Purdue account and when your advisor emails you we expect you to read those emails and at that point we consider you to be “informed.” Do not forward your Purdue email to another account. There have been many issues that students have realized with this method and it can cause important communications to be lost. Bottom line, just check your Purdue account.
When you send an e-mail request to your Advisor:
- Include your Full Name, PUID#, and Phone Number
- Check your message for grammar and spelling...It is important - THIS IS NOT A TEXT MESSAGE
- Do not e-mail your Advisor multiple times with the same question if you don’t get an immediate response
- Only write things you are willing to say directly to someone
- Do not email all advisors with the same request
- Always read your email before you send it. Many times the person you send a message to will not interpret your message as intended, and/or your “tone” may not come across the way you planned.
- Be concise and to the point
- Do not use all CAPITAL letters
- Include previous messages/replies if you have an ongoing dialogue with an advisor
- Avoid using URGENT and IMPORTANT
- Make it personal
- Be careful with abbreviations and emoticons :-)
- Use a meaningful subject line
- Do not forward virus hoaxes or chain letters
Here are a few guidelines to follow when sending email:
E-mail your Advisor if you want to:
- Inquire about course drop/add procedures
*Be careful of how a drop could impact your graduation.
- Inquire about a grade change procedure
- Ask about registration
- Ask about CODO requirements
- Ask about your MAI/EAI
- Questions about university policies or procedures

A student who receives a grade of "I" in a course and who successfully completes his/her work in the time interval specified by the instructor but no later than the 12th week of the second subsequent semester of enrollment will receive from the instructor whatever permanent grade his/her work would have deserved if it had been completed on time. The value of the final grade resulting from the late completion of the course requirements shall be incorporated in future graduation indexes. If the student fails to achieve, within the specified time, a permanent grade to replace the incomplete grade he/she received, then the value of an "IF" (Incomplete Failing) grade shall be incorporated in future graduation indexes. If the student repeats the course within two subsequent semesters of enrollment, the original grade of Incomplete shall not revert to a failing grade. The value of a completion grade or an "IF" grade shall not be included in Graduate School index computation if the original grade of Incomplete was received while the student was enrolled as an undergraduate.
A student who feels that she/he has received an inappropriate grade in a course may appeal the grade to the instructor, department head, or the Grade Appeals Committee of the college/school in which the contested grade was awarded. For detailed information about appealing a grade, please review this document (downloadable pdf).
An instructor who discovers that an erroneous grade was reported for a student shall immediately submit to the Registrar a statement, countersigned by the department head, of what retroactive correction is to be made. A correction of grade should be reported to the Registrar within 30 days after the start of the regular semester following the session in which the erroneous grade was reported. Any correction reported after this time must be accompanied by the instructor’s explanation for the delay in reporting in addition to the approval of the department head unless the grade change is the result of a grade appeal. When a grade correction is recorded the appropriate semester and graduation indexes will be corrected
To calculate a semester or graduation grade point average (GPA) use the Semester/Graduation Index Calculator on our website: http://www.krannert.purdue.edu/undergraduate/current-students/gpa.asp
All matters relative to attendance, including the make-up of missed work, are to be arranged between you and the instructor involved.
Only the instructor can excuse you from classes or course responsibilities.
In the case of an illness, accident, or an emergency, the Office of the Dean of Students should be notified as soon as possible. The student should make direct contact with his/her instructors as soon as possible, preferably before the class, if an exam is to be held. If the instructor cannot be reached directly a message should be left in the instructor’s department mailbox or with the instructor’s secretary.
If you do have to miss a class, talk with the instructor about missed notes or borrow class notes from another student in the class and try to review them with that student or the instructor.
The final examination period is intended for the end-of-semester examination. No examination or quiz may be given during the week (three days in summer session) preceding the final examination period of the semester (examinations for laboratory, intensive, or mini-courses excluded).
It will be the responsibility of the department head, or where appropriate the school head, to ensure that none of the departmental or school faculty uses the week (three days in summer session) preceding the final examination period to administer an examination.
Students scheduled for more than two examinations in one calendar day are entitled to reschedule any examinations in excess of two. Similarly, students faced with a direct exam conflict are entitled to reschedule either examination.
It is the responsibility of the student to make the necessary arrangements before the last week of regularly scheduled classes. Course instructors shall not penalize a student who chooses to reschedule an examination under these options (University Regulations, Part 2, Section I.B.5).
If a student elects to take a course by correspondence from another institution to meet graduation requirements, all exams must be administered in the Dean of Student’s Testing Center in Schleman Hall, Rm. B-42. (Check with your academic advisor before signing up for the course.)
Please follow the procedure listed below:
Call 494-1146 for an appointment when you are ready to take your test. When you call, you must know the amount of time that will be allowed for your particular correspondence course exam.
The Test Center hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There is no charge for exams administered during these times. Requests for testing beyond these hours are negotiated on an individual basis and involve a fee.
Bring your student identification to the Testing Center. This is required before you can begin testing.
Be on time. If you are late for your scheduled exam, you must forfeit that time or reschedule.
At the conclusion of each semester the Registrar shall indicate which students are scholastically eligible to be included on the Dean’s List. The following criteria must be met:
- Have at least 12 credit hours included in the graduation index
- Have at least six hours included in the semester index
- Attain at least a 3.5 graduation index
- Have at least a 3.0 current semester index
At the conclusion of each semester the Registrar shall indicate which students are scholastically eligible for Semester Honors. The following criteria must be met:
- Have at least six credit hours included in the semester index
- Attain at least a 3.5 semester index
- Have at least a 2.0 graduation index
Graduation Index Requirement
For a bachelor's degree, the required minimum graduation index is 2.0.
Graduation With Distinction
- A candidate for the baccalaureate degree with distinction must have a minimum of 65 hours of credit earned at Purdue included in the computation of the graduation index. (This does not include pass/not-pass credits.)
- The minimum graduation index for graduation with distinction in each school shall be no less than the 90th percentile of the graduation indexes of the graduates in each school, for the spring semester, provided the index is at least 3.3. The minimum graduation index so determined in the spring for each school shall be applied for graduation with distinction for the subsequent summer session and fall semester.
- Of those graduates who qualify for distinction under these rules for the spring semester, the three-tenths of the baccalaureate graduates having the highest graduation indexes shall be designated as graduating with highest distinction, irrespective of the schools from which they graduate. The minimum graduation indexes determined for graduation with highest distinction shall be applied for graduation with highest distinction for the subsequent summer session and fall semester. Purdue University Regulations Section IX.C.
What it means to be on probation
According to University policy, a student shall be placed on scholastic probation from the University if, at the close of any regular semester, his/her graduation index is LESS than that required of a student with his/her classification shown in the table on the Office of the Dean of Students website (see page 23 of University Regulations handbook). If you are on probation you are at risk of being dropped from the University.
A student on probation shall be removed from that status at the end of the first subsequent semester in which he/she achieves both semester and graduation indexes equal to or greater than those required for a student with his/her classification as shown in the above table. To determine your semester classification (Class), go to mypurdue.purdue.edu and click on the Academic tab. From there, go to the last semester you have completed and, in most cases, add 1 to your classification.
What causes a student to be placed on drop status
Once on probation, you need to bring your grades up to a satisfactory level. A student on scholastic probation shall be dropped if at the close of any regular semester, his/her graduation index is less than that required of a student as shown in the table below OR if he/she receives failing grades in six credit hours or more for the semester.
What it means to be dropped
If you are dropped from the University, it means that you have not made sufficient progress to warrant continuing your education at this University. Higher education is indeed a privilege. It does not mean however, that you cannot continue at a later time, at another university, or even at this University. Readmission, however, is not automatic.
Your classification reflects the number of semester hours completed.
Purdue students who wish to drop all of their classes during a given semester or summer session must withdraw from the university. The withdrawal process begins by contacting the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS). Detailed procedures for withdrawing are available at the ODOS website.
Students who have been dropped by Purdue because of academic deficiencies may apply for readmission to the university. Detailed procedures regarding application for readmission are available at the ODOS website.
The purpose of the Purdue University academic community is to search for truth and to endeavor to communicate with each other. Self-discipline and a sense of social obligation within each individual are necessary for the fulfillment of these goals. It is the responsibility of all Purdue students to live by this code, not out of fear of the consequences of its violation, but out of personal self-respect. As human beings, we are obliged to conduct ourselves in accordance with high integrity. As members of the civil community we have to conduct ourselves as responsible citizens in accordance with the rules and regulations governing all residents of the state of Indiana and of the local community. As members of the Purdue University community, we have the responsibility to observe all University regulations.
To foster a climate of trust and high standards of academic achievement, Purdue University is committed to cultivating academic integrity and expects students to exhibit the highest standards of honor in their scholastic endeavors. Academic integrity is essential to the success of Purdue University's mission. As members of the academic community, our foremost interest is toward achieving noble educational goals and our foremost responsibility is to ensure that academic honesty prevails.
University Regulations Part 5, Section II.
Purdue University values intellectual integrity and the highest standards of academic conduct. To be prepared to meet societal needs as leaders and role models, students must be educated in an ethical learning environment that promotes a high standard of honor in scholastic work. Academic dishonesty undermines institutional integrity and threatens the academic fabric of Purdue University. Dishonesty is not an acceptable avenue to success. It diminishes the quality of a Purdue education which is valued because of Purdue’s high academic standards.
Purdue prohibits “dishonesty in connection with any University activity. Cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly furnishing false information to the University are examples of dishonesty.” [University Regulations, Part 5, Section III, B, 2, a] Furthermore, the University Senate has stipulated that “the commitment of acts of cheating, lying, and deceit in any of their diverse forms (such as the use of substitutes for taking examinations, the use of illegal cribs, plagiarism, and copying during examinations) is dishonest and must not be tolerated. Moreover, knowingly to aid and abet, directly or indirectly, other parties in committing dishonest acts is in itself dishonest.” [University Senate Document 72-18, December 15, 1972]. Additional information concerning Academic Integrity may be found in the online brochure, Academic Integrity: A Guide for Students from the Dean of Students office.
