After Your Registration Meeting

Plan your courses

  • As soon as you've met with your advisor, you can use the Scheduling Assistant  in MyPurdue to create a tentative schedule. Re-run this schedule the night before your time ticket opens to make sure that course times have not changed.  Help with using Scheduling Assistant can be found here.

Register for your courses

When your time ticket opens, use the Scheduling Assistant to register for courses. Afterwards, check MyPurdue > Academics tab > Week at a Glance link to make sure that your courses have been officially registered. Remember: Scheduling Assistant is just a planning tool. Do not use it to look up your schedule once you have registered. 

If Scheduling Assistant is not allowing you to submit your courses, you can add them manually:

  • Take a picture of the List of Classes tab on the Scheduling Assistant page. 
  • Go to MyPurdue > Registration tab > Add or Drop Classes link.
  • Enter your Registration PIN. 
  • Look for the five-digit CRN numbers next to your courses. They are the first five digits before the dash.  For example, you might see "40558-031" next to your course, but only the "40558" part is the CRN number. 
  • Type in all of these CRN numbers in the boxes at the bottom of the page.  Enter one CRN per box. Click the "Submit" button to officially add your courses!

If you experience an error registering, refer to the Registrar's Add Error page for a solution. Contact your Exploratory Studies academic advisor if you still have questions. 

Update your long term plan

Pay fees

  • Pay all tuition and fees by the deadline through the Bursar's office. Bills will not be mailed to you, so please check MyPurdue > Financial tab for costs and payment options!
