Registration and Records

Drop/Add/Withdraw

Adding a class 

Before the Fall or Spring semester starts and during the first 5 days of classes, continuing students can add a class themselves on My.Butler.edu, with no paperwork or approvals. If you wish to add a class after the 5th day of classes, please contact your advisor who will provide you with a Drop/Add/Withdraw form that must be signed by your advisor, the instructor of the class you wish to add, and the dean of the college you are enrolled in. Once you have obtained the approvals, take the form to Jordan Hall 133. Copies will be returned to you and your department once the class has been added. 

Dropping a class 

Before the Fall or Spring semester starts and during the first 10 days of classes of the term, you may drop a class, and it will not show on your transcript. Continuing students can drop a class themselves on My.Butler.edu, with no paperwork or approvals, until 11:59 pm on the last drop date.

Withdrawing from a class

After the 10th day of classes in the Fall or Spring semesters, you may still withdraw from a class up to the 10th week of classes during the Fall and Spring semesters. The class will still show on your transcript, with a grade of W. You will not get any credit for this class and it will not be counted in your GPA. To withdraw from a class, start with your advisor; you will need a Drop/Add/Withdraw form signed by your advisor and the instructor of that class. Once you have obtained the approvals, take the form to Jordan Hall, Room 133. Copies will be returned to you and your department once the class has been dropped. 

Questions regarding Tuition refunds should be directed to the Office of Student Accounts.
