Registration Information FAQs
Q. How do I know when I can begin to register for classes?
All students are assigned specific days and times that they can register for classes; this is determined by their current student classification (Senior, Junior, Sophomore, etc.). Reference charts above. Note: For your exact day and time, please check your Registration Status via myPurdue.
Q. How are these group days and times determined?
They are determined by the student's current classification (total number of credit hours earned). This does not include courses for which a student is currently registered.
Q. How do I find out when I can register?
To find your registration status, follow the step-by-step instructions here. Look under "Registration Procedures."
Q. What is a Registration PIN and how do I get one?
A Registration PIN is assigned to students for access to the myPurdue registration system. Registration PIN numbers are distributed by academic advisors and are assigned each semester.
Q. How do I register for classes?
Q. When do new spring admits and summer admits register?
Beginning November 30 for spring new and March 6 for summer new admits can begin to register for classes.
Q. What is a hold?
Holds refer to the restriction of a student’s eligibility to enroll in classes, change his/her curriculum or obtain academic transcripts at Purdue University. Holds can result from a variety of situations, including, but not limited to: nonpayment of library fines, parking tickets, and residence hall bills; disciplinary action taken by the Office of the Dean of Students; poor scholastic performance; or failure to meet immunization requirements. Prior to meeting with an advisor, a student needs to make certain his/her record is clear of financial and registration holds.
If a student is in hold status and would like to verify the hold, he/she can do so through myPurdue. For further information, go to the Office of the Registrar, Room 45, Hovde Hall; call (765) 494-6165; or send an inquiry via e-mail to email@example.com.
Q. How do you know if a section is cancelled?
When a section is cancelled, an e-mail will be sent to students registered in the cancelled section notifying them they need to move to a non-cancelled section.
The Office of the Registrar will flag the section as cancelled, remove the cancelled section time and instructor, and change the building and room to CANCELLED CLASS. The course will appear on the Concise Student Schedule as cancelled.
If a class is cancelled after a registration time period for a registration group has passed and prior to the open registration period, advisors can assist students in moving out of the cancelled section and registering for a non-cancelled section of that course, or, if the entire course is cancelled, registering for another course.
