ME Grad Student Registration Guide - Fall 2020
- Watch for an email regarding the Candidate Meeting
- To declare candidacy, you are required to fill out a Form 23, have your major professor sign it, return it to the ME Grad Office.
- MS non-thesis students will NOT be allowed to register for "Exam or Degree Only"
1. Schedule of Classes - find course numbers & CRNs
Log in to myPurdue and click on "View the schedule of classes" to locate course numbers and CRN #s. Check if you need signature and/or approval for course overrides for courses outside of ME.
2. Meet With Your Major Professor
Set up a meeting with your major professor to determine your course schedule and then enter your registration through myPurdue. YOU and your major professor are responsible for following your Plan of Study, area exam conditions (PhD), etc.
3. PIN Number
Log in to the Engineering PIN System to retrieve your PIN number. You must have a Plan of Study in the process of approval to access your PIN.
If you don't have a Plan of Study in process of approval, your PIN number will not be available.
4. Independent Study Courses - requires a Form VT
Meet with your major professor to determine course title, fill out and email the Form VT to the ME Graduate Office at MEgradoffice@purdue.edu. Once it is completed with your signature, instructor’s signature and your advisor’s signature, email Form VT to ME Grad Office for department head signature. ME Grad Office will submit to firstname.lastname@example.org when completed.
5. Funded Students
If you are being funded by a research or teaching assistantship or a fellowship, you are required to register for at least 12 credit hours of coursework and/or research.
If your assistantship status is changing, notify the Engineering Employment Center, Wang Hall (Rm 4008), email@example.com. (Please make sure to include your PUID in the email.)
6. Thesis Research - requires a Form 23
If you are a PhD, D-PhD, or MS thesis option student you are required to enroll in thesis research every semester. You can find your professor’s research CRN in the Schedule of Classes in myPurdue. Fill out Form 23 and submit directly to the registrar’s office, firstname.lastname@example.org. The form MUST be signed by both you and your major professor. Print-outs of your Plan of Study & current registration must be submitted with the Form 23 to your major professor. (You are charged for research credits just like lecture credits. You can use the tuition calculator to determine cost, since it depends on how many credit hours you need to register.)
7. Final Check
Double-check your class list in myPurdue, under "Concise Student Schedule", once it is entered.
