Online spring 2009 registration underway at WL
Class registration for the spring 2009 semester became available online to West Lafayette students Oct. 30, and will be open to all students beginning December 4.
(Students will be able to add courses through the first of classes and drop them through the second week of classes.)
Registration is a multistep process: selecting courses, registering through the myPurdue portal, receiving a schedule and paying fees.
Before a student can register online using myPurdue, they must first see their academic advisor, who will give them a unique PIN (Personal Identification Number), which they will need after logging in.
“Students will need to enter the PIN each time they register for or drop and add classes,” said University Registrar Bob Kubat. “They also will have to obtain a new PIN for each semester’s registration.”
If a student does not know who their advisor is — or if they don’t have one — they should contact their college/school or department. (Links to the colleges and schools (and their programs) at the West Lafayette campus are on the Purdue’s Web site’s Academics page.)
Invoices for spring semester will be made available online and mailed to students beginning in mid-November. In order to make sure that each student’s invoice (and other important documents) reaches the correct address, it is essential that the University have their current address and phone number on file. This information can be verified (and changed) on myPurdue or by visiting the Office of the Registrar.
Spring semester will be the last time the University mails out paper bills. Beginning in summer 2009, all invoicing at Purdue will be done electronically with its new eBill system. More information about this will be included with students’ next invoice, and the next issue of myPurdue News.
For more information about the new registration process, please contact the Office of the Registrar at (765) 494-6165, firstname.lastname@example.org or in Room 45 of Hovde Hall.
Information about specific classes (and their schedules) for spring 2009 semester is available online.
