Request an ECN Account

Obtaining an ECN account is a two-step process, and starts with obtaining a Purdue Career Account. Typically, if you can find yourself in the Purdue Directory, you have a Career Account.

  1. For people who are not yet in the Purdue system: your Supervisor (or Business Office) needs to submit a Request for Privileges (R4P) form. R4Ps are usually processed within one to three business days. Career accounts for students are generated automatically as part of the enrollment process.

    Note that there is no notification when the career account is ready—so once the account appears in the directory, the supervisor will need to fill out and submit the ECN Request for New Account form (login required).

  2. People who are already in the Purdue system can get an ECN account by asking their supervisor or a Business Office representative to fill out and submit the ECN Request for New Account form.

Mechanical Engineering personnel will need to visit room ME2042 in person.

Questions about this process can be directed to your Business Office or to your department's IT staff.
