In relationship with the university, we maintain a set of policies designed to ensure a standard and equitable experience for all students. Below we’ve outlined policies specific to Krannert, but please visit the University Regulations website to learn more about policies for all Purdue West Lafayette students.
Students will be contacted by their Krannert advisor each semester to schedule a registration appointment. If you unable to attend your appointment, you must cancel your appointment as soon as possible.
If you arrive later than ten minutes for your appointment, you will be asked to reschedule.
Most students will need to complete lower division requirements before enrolling in upper division courses. Please review the Requirements for Upper Division for specific requirements for your major.
If you fail to initially meet the minimum MAI/EAI, you will have additional opportunities to meet the minimum MAI/EAI requirements.
# of MAI/EAI courses taken at Purdue-West Lafayette
# of courses allowed to Retake
If 4-6 of the MAI/EAI courses are taken at Purdue, then:
If 3 of the MAI/EAI courses are taken at Purdue, then:
If 2 MAI/EAI courses are taken at Krannert, then:
*Your most recent (not best) earned grade will be used to calculate your Admissions Index. Once a letter grade in a course has been earned at Purdue West Lafayette, you cannot use transfer credit for the same course when calculating your MAI/EAI. Your Purdue West Lafayette grade will be used in the MAI/EAI calculation.
If you exceed the retake policy, you will be allowed a registration PIN for one additional semester of enrollment in Krannert after which you must CODO to another major. A registration PIN will not be given to you after one semester of enrollment upon exhausting eligibility for Upper Division.
Transfer credit may be used for your MAI/EAI requirements. For students who start at Purdue, Krannert requires that you take at least 3 of the 5 or 6 (depending on your catalog term) MAI/EAI courses at Purdue, or a minimum of 2 of the MAI/EAI Krannert courses (MAI: MGMT 20000 & ECON 25100; EAI: ECON 25100 & ECON 25200).
If you are transferring in courses for your MAI/EAI for a given term, you must have your transfer credit sent to Purdue within one week after grades have posted.
Official copies should be sent to:
Target grade distribution for Krannert Core courses will culminate in a 3.0 GPA average. This average would be calculated each semester for an individual instructor teaching one or more sections of a core course. The target grade distribution for elective courses culminates in a 3.3 average GPA. Known exceptions to these targets should be discussed in advance by the Management Policy Committee.
Honors GPA: In November, 2019, the MPC approved an exception for all Honors sections at an average GPA of 3.3, the same as for elective courses.
The Covid-19 pandemic has necessitated some one-time exceptions to our Admission Index requirements for the Krannert School of Management. These exceptions are for courses taken in the Spring 2020 semester and include grade mode and retake policies. Please read our FAQs below on how certain changes might impact your admission to Krannert.
You are urged to work with your academic advisor prior to making any grade modality changes or enrolling in a retake of an Admissions Index course.
Pass = C- or higher is a pass
Not Pass (NP) = D+, D, D- or F
If a student receives an P in an AI course:
If a student receives an P in any MGMT, ECON, OBHR (MEO) course(s) taken prior to Upper Division:
Not Passing (NP):
If a student receives an NP in an AI course:
If a student receives an NP in an MEO course taken prior to Upper Division:
For Industrial Management students who receive an NP in the required CHM/PHYS courses:
For Spring 2020 only:
If a student takes an AI course for a grade and does not meet requirements or must retake the course (D+ or below) we will not count the course attempt in the total number of enrollments for the retake policy. So any attempt (P/NP or for grade) will not count as 1 of the attempts or as a final retake attempt.
Example- Fall 2019 student took MA 16010 and received a D, student is retaking in Spring 2020 and gets a D+ (they would still have one more attempt).
Example-Fall 2019 student took ECON 251 and received a C, decided to retake it in Spring 2020 and gets a C+ but does not meet the AI GPA, they can retake ECON 251 for the third time since the second does not count in total retake attempts.
Example-Student enrolls in COM 114 for the first attempt in Spring 2020 and gets a D. They have 2 more attempts at this course to meet AI requirements.
The AI must consist of at least (2) Krannert graded courses (for MAI/IMMAI-MGMT 20000 and ECON 25100 or for EAI-ECON 25100 and ECON 252) or (3) Purdue graded MAI/EAI courses. For Spring 2020 only, students would not be held to the 2 Krannert/3 Purdue graded requirement.
Example-Student is taking 4/5 AI courses and makes all of them P/NP in Spring 2020, they would only have 1 course remaining that must be taken for a grade to make up their AI GPA.
Example-Student transferred in 3 AI courses and only has 2 remaining that they are taking in Spring 2020. They can take those courses P/NP and if getting the P would meet the AI (would still need to meet all other requirements).
