Registration Process

Overview

Before receiving their registration PIN, all students must submit an Anticipated Degree Plan (ADP) for the next 3 terms: Summer 2015 (if applicable), Fall 2015, and Spring 2016.  Students will still be assigned designated weeks in which they must submit their Anticipated Degree Plan and can meet with their advisor if they wish to do so.  Registration meetings will be 15 minutes, so come prepared.  These meeting times are based on classification listed in MyPurdue.  While most students are not required to hold a meeting with their academic advisor to obtain their Registration PIN, for certain groups of students it is required, so make sure you know your status (listed below).  Students with priority registration will have earlier meeting and ADP submission times regardless of classification, so make sure you know when you are supposed to meet with your advisor: 

When to meet with your academic advisor:

Priority & Seniors:  February 2 - February 20

Juniors:  February 23 - March 13

Sophomores:  March 23 - April 10

Open Appointments:  April 13 onward

These registration periods are NOT to be confused with your actual Time Tickets, but are the times in which you submit your ADP and meet with your advisor in preparation of spring registration. Students who do not submit their ADP and hold their registration meeting during their specified weeks listed above may have to wait until open registration and risk not getting into the class(es) they need.

The following groups of students are required to meet with their primary Academic Advisor:

  • Dual degree students

  • Students planning to Study Abroad in the Summer 2015, Fall 2015, or Spring 2016 semesters.

  • Students matriculating to ECE for Summer/Fall 2015 (i.e., FYE students completing FYE requirements in Spring 2015 and CODO students accepted into ECE as of Summer/Fall 2015)

  • Students with special requests (credit hour overloads, etc.)

  • Academic Probation (includes students on readmit status as of Spring 2015)

  • Transfer Students (new to Purdue starting Spring 2015)

For other students, an advisor meeting is optional unless there is a concern about your ADP, in which case you will be asked to schedule a meeting with your Academic Advisor before your PIN is released.  If your ADP is approved, your PIN will be emailed to you. To guarantee you have your PIN prior to the opening of your time ticket, your ADP must be submitted during your assigned advisor meeting window (see above) and allow no less than 5 business days prior to the opening of your time ticket.  Any ADP submitted outside this window or less than 5 business days prior to your time ticket could cause a delay in you registering for classes. If you wish to meet with your Academic Advisor, you may make an appointment once you receive an email stating that your ADP has been approved.

ECE Wait List

If you need in an ECE course or section that is currently closed or if there is a conflict with another required course, please complete the ECE Wait List request and you will be contacted by our office as soon as information is available.

The wait list should be utilized only when you are unable to fit a course into your schedule, either due to it being full or because of a time-conflict. Every attempt should be made to work out a schedule, even if you have to choose a section that is not your first choice; you can always make changes later should a space appear in your preferred section.  You should not fill out the wait list to try to get into a more ‘desirable’ section of a course. If you need further assistance, please contact the ECE Undergraduate Advising Office at 494-3390 or stop by EE 136.

 

ECE Override Requests

If you are an ECE student who is getting an error when adding a course to your schedule, please complete the ECE Override Request and you will be contacted by our office as soon as information is available. If you are a non-ECE student, please fill out and submit the outside space request form. Please note that with the exception of foreign language courses, we are unable to provide overrides for general education courses. Please contact the appropriate department.

 

Non-ECE Course Override Information

Some departments have well-established procedures for requesting space or overrides for their courses. For the procedures regarding courses in a department not listed, contact the specific department directly for further instructions and then follow-up with your ECE advisor if necessary. Overrides for ECE courses should be requested using the form listed above.

  • Krannert Upper-Division Courses
    • Krannert no longer issues overrides for non-Krannert students. Instead, students will need to add their names to the MyPurdue waitlist after restrictions are lifted on the course(s). The dates on which restrictions are removed can be found on their website.
  • Computer Science
    • If you need an override for a prerequisite/co-requisite or instructor's permission, speak to your ECE Academic Advisor to begin the process. Other overrides for CS courses can be requested via their website.
  • Wine Appreciation (FS 47000)
    • Students should begin the process by speaking to an ECE Academic Advisor to obtain a Form 23. The Form 23 should be taken along with driver's license or passport to the Food Science Department (NLSN Rm 2203) to verify that the student will be 21 years old by the date specified by the FS Department.
  • Foreign Language Courses
    • Students planning on enrolling for the first time in a foreign language course who have taken 2 years or more of that language in high school must take the language placement exam. Students who have no previous courses in a language or who have less than 2 years of language study may fill out the ECE override request form to request an override to start at the 10100 level if departmental permission is required for enrollment.

 

Outside Space Requests

Non-ECE students who wish to enroll in an ECE course must submit an Outside Space Request form. Approval is contingent upon space being available in the course. Most outside space requests are processed on the Thursday during the week of a student's time-ticket as current ECE students are given priority when registering. An email will be sent to students once the override has been entered.
