A perfect way to show your family’s school pride is by purchasing an Exploratory Studies Custom Designed T-shirt!
- These light grey shirts feature the student-designed Exploratory Studies logo on the back and an official Purdue pocket logo on the front.
- Shirts are available in unisex adult sizes S, M, L, XL, & XXL (see ordering directions below) for the low price of $14 – $15 + tax each (depending on the size).
- Profits from the shirt sale support student engagement activities organized by the Exploratory Student Advisory Council (ESAC).
- If you have an incoming student and order before your STAR appointment, your student will receive her/his shirt(s) during their STAR advising appointment (while supplies last) or during our College Welcome/September check-in! What a wonderful surprise!
- If you decide to order after your STAR date – that is OK! Your student will receive their shirt when they come back to campus this fall.
- If you’re a current or former student you can still order a shirt! Just make a note in the box saying you’re a current student and will be by to pick up your shirt.
Below is a design of the t-shirt along with directions on how to order one today!

Spring Grades will be posted Wednesday, May 13 after 9:00 a.m. on myPurdue > Academic Tab > Grades (Final Grades or Grade Detail). Watch your Purdue e-mail for information concerning unmet pre-requisites, honor roll congrats, or academic probation.
Here are some things to keep in mind as you view your grades:
- If you feel that the grade you earned was mis-calculated and you have sufficient proof (i.e. Blackboard, your personal records, returned tests or scantrons, etc.), please contact your professor immediately. Their contact information should be on the syllabus. Be polite, patient, and persistent!
- Unless you gave your parents’ permission to view myPurdue, they will not receive notification of your grades. It is your responsibility to talk them about it. Your advisor cannot answer their questions concerning your grades, as it is a FERPA violation (the national law that protects your educational records).
After grades are posted, MyPurdue is likely to be relatively slow as students change their schedules in response to final grades. Here are some tips for changing courses:
- MyPurdue is currently open to all students for schedule modifications through June 6 at noon. Then MyPurdue will close until July 20 at 9:00 a.m. So, if you need to make schedule changes, make them soon!
- If you have lost your PIN, recover it at myPurdue > Academic Tab > Registration PIN.
- Contact your academic advisor if you have questions about what to retake.
Taking Summer Courses at a Purdue Regional Campus (Calumet, North Central, IPFW, and IUPUI):
- Courses taken here will transfer both credit AND grade.
- Grades from regional campuses will replace grades taken at Purdue West Lafayette – IF the course is the exact same number and abbreviation. For example, ECON E-201 taken at IUPUI will NOT replace ECON 251 taken at Purdue West Lafayette.
If you are taking courses outside of the Purdue system, here are some things to remember:
- If you are taking a course during the summer to meet a pre-requisite for a Fall class, you must let your academic advisor know! Otherwise, the Registrar will drop your Fall course and you may not be able to re-add it.
- Courses taken outside the Purdue system transfer for credit only. Students need to earn a C or better for the transfer to occur. Check the Transfer Credit Database to see if the course at the summer college has an equivalent at Purdue: https://selfservice.mypurdue.purdue.edu/prod/bzwtxcrd.p_select_info.
- At the end of the summer, have the summer college send an official transcript to this address: http://admissions.purdue.edu/transfercredit/transferprocess.php (scroll to the bottom of the page).
Most online courses will have electronically completed exams, quizzes, and papers and will not require a visit to any campus to complete. If the professor sends his or her syllabus in advance, check there first for exam administration information.
However, a few courses will ask that you take your exams at a college testing center near where you live:
- Call the college’s main number for information and explain your situation.
- Contact the online course instructor to see how your exams will be administered.
- You can find professor’s e-mail at MyPurdue > Academic Tab > Look Up Classes. Choose the Subject, then View Sections. Click on the CRN (in blue) of the section you scheduled. At the bottom of the page is the professor’s name. Click on the envelope icon to see his or her e-mail address.
