During the fall and spring semesters, the Office of Admissions can help you make arrangements to attend a class, with or without a current student. If you want to attend on your own, you can make arrangements on the day you visit. If you want to attend with a student, contact Admissions in advance.
Independent Class Visits
Choose a class of interest and arrive at Purdue University, Office of Admissions, Schleman Hall, Room 109, approximately 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the class you wish to attend. Fill out an Independent Class Visit permission form to give to the professor 10 – 15 minutes prior to the beginning of class. Plan to attend the entire class so you will not disturb the professor or the students taking the class.
Class Visit with a Student Host
You also may attend a class with a current Purdue student (not necessarily one of the independent visit classes on the schedule above). To make arrangements, contact the Office of Admissions, firstname.lastname@example.org, 765-494-1776 at least two weeks prior to your visit. We will do our best to match you with a student host according to your academic interests.
