An updated demonstration video will help new students prepare for their first class registration during STAR (Summer Transition, Advising and Registration).
Formerly known as Day on Campus, STAR, which runs June 16-July 10, is a one-day orientation to Purdue and is mandatory for all new, domestic undergraduate students. As part of STAR, these incoming students will register for fall semester classes using the myPurdue portal after meeting with their academic advisors.
The new demo walks students through the steps to enroll in their first courses, said Dan Carpenter, associate director of the University’s Student Access, Transition and Success Programs (SATS).
“This will be useful to all students, of course,” he said, “but we think it will be particularly helpful to new students. A lot of information is thrown at them during STAR, so showing them how to register beforehand will make it easier to do later.
“They’ll also get more exposure to myPurdue, which they’ll be using throughout their years at Purdue.”
