ICN Taught Online Courses

With ICN Inter-institutional Registration, you receive resident credit at Purdue Polytechnic Institute for courses taken at other participating ICN Home Institutions. If you are receiving financial aid from Purdue Polytechnic Institute, it will cover the cost of these courses. And best of all, your course(s) and grade(s) will appear on your Purdue transcript automatically. With your signed ICN Registration Form, you have met with your Student Services Coordinator to ensure that the course(s) to be taken at another ICN Home (originating) Institution will be accepted by the Purdue Polytechnic Institute and apply to your specific degree program.

1. You will be registered at the ICN Institution of your selected course(s) as a visiting student. To the instructor, you will not be identified as a Purdue Polytechnic Institute student.

2. Your Student Services Coordinator will be contacted with your registration confirmation. Your course will be entered into the Purdue registration system where you will be able to view it in myPurdue.

3. You will be billed by the Purdue Polytechnic Institute at its tuition rate for all of your courses, regardless of where they originate.

4. Using your Purdue email address only, the college or university offering the course(s) will contact you with information on accessing the online course and buying your books. If you don’t receive an email, feel free to contact the ICN Coordinator (see Contacts) for more information. If you need access to computers or equipment to take your course(s), please contact your local Student Services Coordinator.

5. Participation in the course is monitored in the first few weeks. You must begin your course and participate in order to remain in the course. If the instructor reports no activity, you may be dropped from the course and you will be responsible for all fees. Most online courses allow flexibility, but weekly activity is usually required.

6. If you need to drop an ICN course, you must contact your Student Services Coordinator to fill out the proper documentation. Remember, you are registered at two institutions. If you do not fill out a drop form and simply stop attending a course, you will be responsible for any fees assessed. During the regular academic semesters of fall and spring, refund amounts are reflected by your local academic calendar. During the summer, academic calendars vary greatly so refund amounts will be determined on an individual basis.

7. Enjoy the flexibility of an online course, but be responsible. Remember, you are not required to sit in a class 2-1/2 hours per week, but plan on at least that much time toward each of your online classes to be successful. Also, do not put things off to the last minute. You never know what technical issues may affect you.
