Visit the account activation website.

  • You must reactivate your online career account to access your online myPurdue portal, through which you will conduct much of your future business with the University: course registration; fee payment; financial aid award review and acceptance, and more. Career account activation also creates your @purdue.edu email address.

  • To activate your career account, you will need your Purdue University ID (PUID) number and your career account setup password, both of which are provided in your admission offer letter.

Accept your admission offer via myPurdue. No deposit will be required, but you must accept your offer before you will be able to register for classes.

File a FAFSA as soon as possible. We strongly recommend that you use the FAFSA's data retrieval tool to transfer your IRS tax information directly into your FAFSA.

Students interested in on-campus housing in University Residences should visit the housing website for information about availability and contracting. Visit the on- and off-campus housing website for information about cooperative housing, fraternities and sororities and area rental properties.

Contact your academic advising office to make plans for class registration. Visit the Office of the Registrar website for the class registration schedule. Students reentering after more than five years may be eligible for Academic Renewal. If you qualify, you may discuss this option with your academic advisor.
