Welcome to STAR: Student Transition, Advising, and Registration!

 We are delighted that you plan to join Agricultural & Biological Engineering! We look forward to meeting you and hope that you will soon feel at home in our department. Someone from our Department will meet you at Lilly Hall around 9 am on the day of your STAR visit to campus and bring you to the ABE building where we will introduce you to our Department and help you schedule your first semester classes. We will also answer any questions you might have about any of the 3 Agricultural & Biological Engineering Majors (Agricultural Systems Management, Agricultural Engineering, and Biological Engineering). Feel free to browse through our pages for Current Students, Future Students, and the University STAR site to register and find the details. This page will be updated regularly, so you might want to stop by periodically. You can contact Dan Taylor or Yvonne Hardebeck at 765/494-1172 if you have questions that need to be answered before you arrive on campus.

 You are a STAR in ABE!

 STAR DATES for 2016 have not yet been announced. Remember you need to register to attend STAR.

Helpful Planning:

  1. Know which area you plan to join - Engineering (Biological or Agricultural) OR Agriculture. If you need help deciding, contact Dan Taylor.
  2. We need you to take the Math Placement Test (ALEKS) prior to your arrival: http://www.math.purdue.edu/academic/undergrad/placement
    ***If you have not taken the ALEKS Placement Test PRIOR to arrival for STAR, we cannot register you for a math class.***
