Registration is the process of selecting courses, reserving space in those courses, receiving a schedule, and paying fees. You are not officially enrolled until fees are paid.

Step-by-Step Process

Research on your own.

Create a long term plan.

Schedule an advising appointment with your advisor.

  • Using your advisor's online calendar, schedule a half hour appointment BEFORE your time ticket opens.  Time ticket information is available in myPurdue under your academic tab.  Students will need to select 'Registration Status' to find the exact time and date they may begin registering for courses.
  • Make note of the day/time of your appointment in your calendar or phone.

Attend advising appointment with advisor.

  • If you're running late to your appointment, please call the office (765) 494-0843.  Missing your appointment wastes your advisor's time and prevents other students from being able to find time to schedule.
  • Come prepared to your advising appointment.  Bring plans of study, list of courses, MyPurduePlan semester plan, questions, etc. WITH YOU to your advising meeting!!!
  • At this meeting…
    • You and your advisor will discuss course selection.
    • You and your advisor will discuss your long terms goals and your advisor will offer insight on your semester plan.
    • You may obtain CODO papers if you need them.
    • You will leave with your registration PIN.

Register for courses.

Update your long term plan.

Pay fees.

  • To avoid being dropped from your schedule, pay all fees through the Bursar's office.
