What is VSTAR?

Virtual STAR (VSTAR) is our required online orientation program for all new undergraduate students. This program takes place in Brightspace, a system where you will see all of your course information each semester. This fall, VSTAR will open on Monday, October 18th for all spring-admitted students. Please monitor your Purdue email and this website for any new or updated information regarding VSTAR.

Students are automatically enrolled in VSTAR after they accept their offer of admission. You can complete VSTAR at any pace, but you must complete it and meet with your academic advisor. Once finished, students will be prompted to fill out a survey that will alert an academic advisor of the student’s VSTAR completion. Academic Advisors will then reach out to students with availability to set up a virtual advising appointment, where they will work with students to preference their fall courses. Advising appointments will begin in late summer - more information will be released at a later date.

This page will be continually updated as more information becomes available. We encourage you to check back here continually to learn more. If you have a specific question, check out our VSTAR FAQ page.
