You will register for STAR via the myPurdue portal, using the same registration system that you'll use to register for courses.

You will need to know the abbreviation for your college, school, program, or major to register for an appropriate section of STAR. The College of Engineering, the College of Health and Human Sciences, the College of Science, and the College of Technology each offer sections for specific majors. Students admitted to any other college, school, or program can refer to this table to determine the appropriate abbreviation. In the tables, the first column, College/Major, is a listing of the colleges and majors to which students can be admitted. The second column, Course Number, is the abbreviation for the College/Major that you will use to search and register for an appropriate section of STAR.

To register, do the following:

  1. Once you have logged into myPurdue with your career account information, click on the link that reads Select your STAR Date.
  2. If prompted, choose the STAR/BGR: New Admits Fall 2014 term.
  3. Press the button that reads Class Search.
  4. Under Subject, highlight STAR-Summer Trans Advis & Reg. This is the subject heading for all sections of STAR.
  5. Under Course Number, enter the abbreviation associated with your college/major.
  6. Press the button that reads Class Search.
  7. You will be presented with a list of all STAR dates associated with that college/major. Choose the date that works best for you, and place a checkmark in the box to the left of that section.
  8. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Register. You will now be registered for STAR, and you'll also receive an email at your email address confirming your registration.
