Attend an admitted student visit program.

myPurdue is the online portal through which you will conduct business with the University now and once you are enrolled. Your portal provides a "new student task list" and indicates when you have completed the necessary steps to enroll. To gain access to your myPurdue portal, you must activate your online career account via the account activation website. You will need your Purdue University ID (PUID) number and your career account setup password, both of which were provided in your admission offer letter.

Accept your admission offer. Students admitted before May 1 to begin in the summer term must accept their offer by May 15. Students admitted after May 1 have three weeks (or until the start of the term) to accept. A nonrefundable $400 deposit will be required to accept your offer. The deposit will be applied toward first-semester fees and the housing contract fee (if you contract with University Residences).

File a FAFSA as soon as possible. Students interested in financial aid for the summer 2017 term and the 2017-18 fall/spring academic terms should file both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 FAFSAsWe 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.

May 5 is the priority deadline to apply for Learning Communities. The Learning Community application will be available beginning December 12. Spaces are limited and placement announcements are made in early June.

Prior to course registration, you will be required to demonstrate your ability to succeed in math. SAT and ACT math scores as well as Purdue's ALEKS math assessment are among the resources your academic advisor can use to determine whether you are academically prepared to succeed in the first math course required for your major's plan of study. The Math Department website provides information about the ACT, SAT or ALEKS scores necessary for placement in various math courses. You may refer to the University Catalog to find your major's plan of study. If your ACT or SAT math score is not high enough for placement in your required math course, you may take the free, online ALEKS assessment (accessible via myPurdue prior to your registration period).

Contact your academic advising office to make plans for class registration. Visit the Office of the Registrar website for the class registration schedule.

Fee statements will be sent to your @purdue.edu email address and accessible through myPurdue.

Summer Transition, Advising and Registration (STAR) is the required summer registration program for new students. It's held on campus on multiple dates in June and July. STAR registration will be available beginning December 12, via myPurdue, to students who have accepted their admission offer. International students will have the ability to attend Virtual STAR.

Boiler Gold Rush is the new student orientation program held the week before fall classes begin in August. BGR registration will be available beginning December 12, via myPurdueto students who have accepted their admission offer.

Purdue requires final grades from any coursework completed prior to enrollment, and it is your responsibility to ensure we receive official documentation (including any final transcripts). Purdue's expectation is that admitted students will maintain a consistent level of academic performance, and we reserve the right to rescind an offer of admission to any student who demonstrates a significant decline in grades between admission and enrollment.
