Closed Courses

For IE courses

The School of Industrial Engineering utilizes the waitlisting function in myPurdue for nearly all IE courses (including graduate level courses). The only exceptions are IE 33200, IE 38600, IE 43100, and IE 47000. If you would like to register for a closed course then you will need to add yourself to the waitlist via myPurdue. Detailed instructions for adding yourself to the waitlist are included in myPurdue on the Help/Navigation tab.

Do not contact the IE undergraduate advising office or the course instructor regarding entry into waitlisted courses.

For the non-waitlisted IE courses, a manual waitlist is maintained by the IE undergraduate advising office. Please contact Dr. Brunese to request addition to the manual waitlist. To request a class, the student must provide the following information:

  1. Full name
  2. Course # and CRN for the lecture
  3. CRNs for the lab sections (if applicable) and the order of preference and feasibility of each.

Due to frequent reshuffling of student schedules, all requests will be tallied and held until the end of the week prior to the start of the semester. At that time, the list will be evaluated on a first-come first-served basis, and overrides will be provided if space exists in the classroom. Do not contact the course instructor directly regarding entry into a closed course. The instructors do not have the authority to approve closed section overrides.

For Non-IE courses

Every department at Purdue has a designated schedule deputy who is in charge of handling scheduling and closed sections. This person has sole authority regarding overrides for closed classes. The list of schedule deputies and their contact information is here. The schedule deputy will either approve, deny, or give further instructions regarding the completion of an override request.
