    schedule change

    Hi,
    Is it still possible to drop a course and pick up another one and still get 3 credit hours?

    Spring Term 2013 | The Office of the Registrar

    Seems applicable.

    Talk to your advisor.

    Youre in your last year and youre asking scheduling questions on cyclonefanatic?

    The value of an ISU diploma seems to be decreasing.

    Re: schedule change

    Chances of getting added to a different class this far into the semester is next to zero.

    Chances of success in a class you add this late are also next to zero.

    So, you're getting your *** handed to you in the one you're currently in? Is it a class that you could take P/F for your degree (ask your advisor) and pull off the Pass?

    I'm almost certain you'll be told SOL on getting into a different, full-semester course at this point.

    Not a sales pitch that gets the add slip signed.

    Re: schedule change

    As others said, dropping isn't an issue but being added would probably be near impossible. We're already almost to mid-term and you would have likely already missed at least one exam. Only chance would be to find a professor nice enough to add you and let you take the exam blindly ASAP, but I don't think many professors would do that since the exam is already out there to all of the other students and would likely be easy for you to access.

    Good Luck!
