Registering for EPICS

Registration for EPICS is open to all undergraduates of any major.

Registration happens in two phases, Pre-Registration and Open Registration.

Pre-Registration will be handled through the EPICS office and the Registrar prior to batch scheduling. Students and advisors will NOT add EPICS to CRFs through Scheduling Assistant. Instead, your EPICS section will be placed on your CRF for you so it can be optimized with your other courses, giving you the best chance of being assigned to the team that you prefer. In order to indicate the team you want to join for the upcoming semester, you will complete the Pre-Registration form at

EPICS and the Registrar's office will add the course to your schedule according to the team you selected in the survey. The course will only be added to your CRF if you complete the pre-registration survey by the above date.

Open-Registration is done through myPurdue like all of your other courses with one significant difference: each division of EPICS is a different team. Unlike most courses where the labs are all the same no matter what time they are scheduled, each lab division represents a different team. You can choose your team by finding the appropriate CRN via the CRN list at the bottom of this page.

Important things to know when registering:

  • Before you register, it is important to become familiar with the EPICS teams to determine which teams best fit your interest and course of study. It is recommended that you identify at least five teams that you would like to participate on in case some of the teams do not fit in your schedule or are already full.
  • If you are planning on registering for senior design, please email first as prior program approval is required for senior design registration.
  • When you register for EPICS during open registration, you will need to register for both the lab portion of the class and the lecture portion of the class. The lab portion corresponds to your team, and is scheduled for two hours each week. Please note the division of the team or teams that you are most interested in as you will need to register for that specific division/team when you register for EPICS in myPurdue.
  • Once you know what teams you would like to participate on, the final step is to register for EPICS through your selected method by completing our EPICS pre-registration survey during Pre-Registration or using scheduling assistant during open enrollment. You will need the CRNs, one for lecture and one for the lab during open registration.
