Additional information:

Engineering students please note:  
1.       It is possible to select courses from across Schools within the College of Engineering but preferable to select all courses from a single School.

2.       Avoid taking courses from both the College of Engineering (CoE) and the College of Technology (CoT).  E.g. Mechanical Engineering (ME) courses are taught in the CoE whereas Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) courses are taught in the CoT. Select all your courses from either ME or MET - not both.

3.       Contact your Purdue academic advisor as soon as you have been accepted by Purdue to discuss course registration.
