Please Note: Only students who have accepted their offer of admission to Purdue will be able to submit their BGR registration.

If I am attending BGRi, do I still need to sign up for a Mandatory International Student Check-In (MISCi) Session?

The Mandatory International Student Check-In (MISCi) session is incorporated into BGRi. If you will be attending BGRi, you do not need to sign up for a MISCi session.

Can my parents participate at BGRi with me?

Yes! We have an International Parents Welcome Program designed just for your parents. They will attend this program, while you are participating in BGRi and connecting with your Team Leader International (TLi) and other BGRi participants. You will be participating in activities designed to help students adjust to Purdue. The International Parents Welcome Program is for your parents to learn more about Purdue, go on a campus tour, attend information events, enjoy meals with other parents and guests, and during a few special times both the student and parents will get to enjoy an event together.

Is there a registration fee for BGRi?

No, BGRi is free for international students who enroll in and pay for BGR.

So what's in it for me?

At BGRi, you will have the opportunity to explore campus before the official start of BGR. You will learn about the US and the American university culture and expectations, and how to navigate in and around Purdue. You will spend time with a small group of other new international students and be guided by a Team Leader International to discover services and resources that Purdue makes available to ensure student success. You will also be able to attend an early Mandatory International Student Check In (MISCi) Session and obtain your Purdue ID (PUID) card before the majority of students arrive on campus. And of course you will have FUN!!
