    Registration Tips

    • Use Lookup Classes in myPurdue when deciding what courses you will take to fullfill your degree requirements and completing your plan of study.

    • Some courses are offered in multiple modalities, please ensure you have the correct CRN for your program type (e.g. online vs in person).

    • At the graduate level, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure they are properly prepared to be successful for a course. To do this, we recommend the following:

      • Click on the course name for detailed course information such as registration availability, restrictions, and recommended prerequisite courses (please note, if you have taken a similar course to the prerequisite at another institution, this should suffice).

      • Textbook information is listed in the Schedule of Classes.

        NOTE: Textbook information is subject to be changed at any time at the discretion of the faculty member. If you have questions or concerns please contact the academic department.

      • If you are uncertain about your preparedness for a course, we recommend reaching out to the instructor.
