Which course should you register for?
- There are different course numbers for each year - you should register for the course number that corresponds to the level of courses you are taking in your major/program. If you are classified higher in myPurdue, you can request a classification override.
- There are different course numbers if you are taking VIP as part of the FYE VIP Learning Community pilot (taken with ENGR 13300) or Senior Design.
VIP Course numbers (effective Spring 2021):
- VIP 17911: First year participation in VIP for 1st semester FYE VIP LC students (offered in Fall)
- VIP 17912: First year participation in VIP for 2nd semester FYE VIP LC students (offered in Spring)
- VIP 17920: First year participation in VIP (primarily Data Mine LC students, although there are limited spots available in Spring semester)

The section matters! Please see Scheduling Assistant Walkthough instructions below.
- Each VIP team is a different section of the courses above. It is important that you register for the team that aligns with your interests. See the teams link to find more info and expectations of each of the teams.
- Each team will meet weekly. Some teams have an established meeting time as shown in myPurdue, and others will schedule the meeting based on member availability. In general, course conflicts with the team meeting time (lab section) will not be approved.
- In addition to the team/lab meetings, each registered student is expected to participate in 10 Professional Development (PD) activities during the semester. The course-wide lecture meets weekly, and each week counts as one "PD credit"; therefore, you should plan to attend the lecture most weeks. However, there are other opportunities to earn credits, so please contact VIP if you have a conflict with the lecture.
- A table of the VIP teams, course numbers, and CRNS for the Spring 2022 teams can be found here.
VIP must be taken for a letter grade. It cannot be taken P/NP.

Using VIP 27920 as an example, this is how you find out the CRN for the lecture and the specific VIP team you are interested in joining. The process for VIP 37920 and VIP 47920 are similar. If, for example, you are interested in the 'Beyond 5G' as a sophomore, you would enroll in CRN 19896 for the team.
Each team has different CRNs for the sophomore, junior, and senior level courses, but the teams are linked (cross-listed). The team limit includes all of the cross-listed CRNS. In order to see how many spaces are available on the team, click the team CRN indicated by the arrow above.
Please note that although 1 of 6 spaces have been taken for the 27920 level course, overall the team has 4 of 6 spaces taken, so please make sure to view this detailed information to see if there is space remaining on a team for which you wish to register.
