Registration Procedures


  1. Check University’s Academic Calendar by accessing the Purdue Calumet home page, then clicking on Calendar on the upper right of the screen, and selecting Academic Calendar to see when registration begins.   As a general rule, registration for Summer and Fall semesters begins in mid-March and for Spring semester in mid-October.

  2. If you are a first year student, you are required to see your advisor before registering. Schedule an appointment with your advisor close to the time you may register by calling (219) 989-2339.

  3. Please remember the following when you schedule an appointment with an advisor. 
    1. Be prepared.  Bring any pertinent information with you.
    2. Be on time.  Tardiness causes the following appointments to be disrupted, and you might have to reschedule.
    3. Write down any questions you have so that you will not forget to ask them.

    Review the advising syllabus, which provides more information about academic advising expectations.
