Sign Up for Classes
You’ve received your acceptance letter, so it’s time to get started with your Purdue Fort Wayne experience by registering for courses. With goPFW, you can register for courses and view class schedules, class descriptions, grades, and transcripts.
Here’s a basic guide to sign up for courses through goPFW’s Banner system. If you need help with registration, contact your academic advisor.
If this is your first time signing up for courses, you’ll need to make sure to activate your goPFW account. To do this, go to goPFW and select the First-time user? link. After that, follow the instructions given to activate your account by setting up your username and password. You’ll need to provide your last name, your birth date, and either the last four digits of your Social Security number or all nine digits of your student ID number.
Once your student account is set up and you can log in to goPFW, you’re ready to start registering for courses. Make sure that you talk to your academic advisor about your academic plans and what courses you’ll need before registering. Get started with our Online Registration Guide [PDF] or watch the registering for courses online video. If you run into any registration errors, contact your academic advisor.
Once you’ve registered for courses you can view your entire semester schedule. To do this, go back to the Enrollment tab on the goPFW home page and select Summary Schedule of Classes. You can print this page by holding down the Control and P keys on Windows computers or the Command and P keys on Mac OS X computers.
Registering on Your Mobile Device
Registering for courses can also be done through our mobile app. Get started with our Mobile App Registration Guide [PDF] or watch the registering for courses on your mobile device video.
Now that you’ve registered for your next semester, make sure you pay your tuition and fees associated with those courses. The bursar’s office can provide you information about paying your tuition.
