Registration appointments for the Summer and Fall 2013 semester will begin soon after Spring Break (March 11 - 16). The best to time meet with your advisor is about 2-3 weeks before your Time Ticket opens.
Registering for courses can be easy, if you follow these steps:
Check your Time Ticket to find out what day and time you can begin registration on myPurdue.
If you have decided on a major and are ready to CODO, you should first read that college or school’s CODO requirements. CODO's usually require a CODO meeting, so make time to attend one. During the meeting, ask for course suggestions and bring them to your USP registration meeting.
Students who started their freshman year in USP are allowed four (4) semesters before they must CODO. Transfer or CODO-in students are allowed 60 USP hours or 95 total credit hours, whichever one occurs first. If you have reached the limit of time allowed in USP, you will need to CODO in order to register for the next semester.
Time Ticket Information
A “Time Ticket” is a range dates and times you are allowed to register for courses on myPurdue based on your classification. You can see your Time Ticket beginning on March 11, 2013. Log into myPurdue, click on the Academic Tab and then on the "Registration Status" link.
Your Time Ticket might look a little strange at first. It will have several lines. The first line indicates the day and time you can start registering. The two lines of times combine to make one continuous block of time. For example:
April 15, 2013 01:00 pm - April 15, 2013 11:59 pm
April 16. 2013 12:00 am - April 20, 2013 11:59 am
In the above example, you could begin registering at 1:00 p.m. on April 15 and can continue to make additions and changes through April 20 at noon. Remember that 12:00 a.m.= midnight and 12:00 p.m. = noon.
Here are the estimated Time Tickets for Summer and Fall 2013 registration, which are based on your classification. Your classification is visible on MyPurdue within your Academic Profile under the Academic Tab. Classification (freshman, sophomore, etc.) is based on the number of credit hours you have completed and passed (F's don't count). These hours include advanced placement, foreign language placement credit, and transfer credit.

Before Meeting with your Advisor
IMPORTANT: On myPurdue, verify your local and permanent addresses, as well as your emergency contact information. Click on the “Academic” tab. At the top left of the page below "Quick Links" and "Personal Information" are several links to update this information.
Mark the courses you’ve taken and are currently taking on each plan, so that you know which courses that you still need to take.
If you are looking at multiple plans of study, identify common courses among the plans.
If you are still completely undecided, here is some helpful advice for selecting course options.
Prepare for Registration on myPurdue
Check for holds on myPurdue by clicking on the "Academic" tab, then on the "Do I have any Holds?" link under "Registration Tools" category.
If you have a Hold for past due fees, clear it by calling the Bursar at (765) 494-7570 and then making payments.
Start looking up courses and times using the "Look Up Classes" link under the "Academic" tab on myPurdue.
Check each course for pre-requisites and restrictions. These are indicated by an "R" in a gray circle on the far right of the page.
Look for the Red Flag icon! This means that this course has multiple, linked sections that must be added simultaneously. These other sections might be labs, recitations, or practice-study-observations (PSOs) that accompany the lecture.
Use a Schedule of Classes Grid to write down both the time and date of a course section along with its CRN (Course Registration Number). This will make it easier to add courses on myPurdue.
Register for Courses on myPurdue
Watch for your Time Ticket under the "Academic" tab. As soon as you are allowed to register, do so to obtain the best times. If you have done your research, this should go smoothly. However, if you run into problems, please contact your advisor!
Tuition and fees must be paid before the date printed on your e-bill, available on myPurdue. If your payment is not recieved prior to the start of the second week of classes, then your registration will be cancelled. You will then be charged a $200 late fee after re-registering for classes.
Open registration for all students starts April 22, 2013. You can do this from any computer with an internet connection as long as you have your Alternate PIN available.
Make all schedule changes BEFORE the first day of classes. If you don't, you risk losing your seat in your class. Starting on the first day of classes in any semester, students can no longer re-add sections they have dropped. This makes it impossible to change courses with multiple sections without standing in long lines at your advisor's and the Registrar's office.
Lost Your Alternate PIN?
You can look up your Alternate PIN on myPurdue by clicking on the “Academic” tab, then “Registration PIN”, and finally select the term.
Still Completely Undecided?
If you have not decided on a major, it would be helpful to be working toward your areas of interest. Consider the following as you select classes for the next semester:
Review your inventory results from EDPS 10500 to determine possible interests and majors that you’d like to investigate.
Explore 100-level orientation courses on “Look Up Classes."
Consult with your USP advisor, or the advisor in the major you are researching. These advisors can recommend general classes that might count across majors, such as ENGL composition (ENGL 10600 or 10800), Speech (COM 11400), humanities, sciences, or social sciences (e.g. psychology, anthropology, etc.).
If you would like an overview of all of Purdue’s majors, consider taking GS 11900: Introduction
to Academic Programs at Purdue ( PDFWord ), a one-credit hour seminar.
Take the next class that follows your current class in a sequence.
