How do I opt-in to the Fully Online Option for spring 2021? (updated Jan. 5)
Undergraduate Students Currently Enrolled in the Fully Online Option for Fall 2020
The deadline to continue the online experience has passed, but the form has been re-activated for a limited time. Students currently enrolled in the Fully Online Option for fall 2020 and taking OL courses may reference the email “Spring 2021 Online Details” in their Purdue inbox for a unique to you link to the opt-in form. Students who do not take any action will be automatically moved to the residential, in-person or distance learning class experience.
If you do plan to move to the Fully Online Option for spring 2021, you should act quickly, because the form will close on January 7, 2021 at 11:59 PM ET. After that date, no changes will be allowed.
Fall 2020 Residential Undergraduate Students, Regardless of Course Delivery Method
The initial deadline to request movement from the residential experience for the fall 2020 semester, including those taking courses from a distance or in-person, to the Fully Online Option for spring 2021 has passed. We have temporarily opened up a new form that you may use to demonstrate that a significant change has occurred during their fall semester that has put their health at risk, impacted their ability to travel to campus due to travel and/or visa restrictions, or had other significant, unforeseen COVID-19 impacts on the student as well as why the initial deadline was missed. Purdue may request documentation that supports this significant change.
This form should be completed by January 7, 2021 at 11:59 PM ET when the form will close. After that date, no changes will be allowed.
WARNING: You should work with your advisor to confirm that the courses you desire are offered as part of the Fully Online Option spring 2021 catalog and that they have open spaces.
