SAT/ACT mins: We do not have minimum test scores as we holistically review each applicant. We do require the written part of the ACT so that it corresponds with the three-part SAT exam. The freshmen profile varies by college. The middle 50% range for high school gpa is 3.4 – 4.0 and the middle 50% range for SAT is 1600 – 1890. The middle 50% range for ACT composite score is 24 – 30.
SAT or ACT Scores must not be more than: If the applicant has been out of high school for more than 5 years, SAT/ACT test scores are not required. If less than that test scores are required. A specific time frame is not included, however Purdue will not take the scores off of the Marine’s High School transcript, they must come from the Testing agency itself.
LSP Application deadline: Preferred due date is February 1st of the year the student wants to start. If the student would be a transfer student than the due dates vary by which semester they want to begin. If they want to start in August, everything is due by June 1st; for Summer enrollment everything is due by March 1st, and for Spring Enrollment everything is due by October 1st.
Where to find application: We prefer the applications to be submitted on line so the student can follow them through the admissions process. http://admissions.purdue.edu/apply_now/apply_now.html
Freshmen class report date: Fall semester begins typically the fourth Monday in August, while Spring semester begins typically the second Monday in January.
Yellow Ribbon participant: Purdue University does participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program but we cannot guarantee any availability for incoming Marines as we only sponsor 50 positions at any given time.
Will you cover difference between tuition minus GI Bill and cost of in state "state" school tuition? Or do you want to keep it to in-state residents? N/A
Do you want to donate additional money to each applicant should the need arise? All students are eligible to apply for financial aid using the FAFSA.
Processing fees: The application fee is $60, but at the beginning of each application (Beginner and Transfer) there is a waiver process for those students who can’t afford the application fee.
All majors open to Marines? All majors would be open, but no guarantees can be made as most are extremely competitive.
Recognize AA degree or any college course work: All previous college work will be considered, but each College on Purdue University's campus reserves the right to determine how that course work will count toward their Purdue degree.
Recognize awarding of college credits via alternative means, e.g., DANTES or CLEP: How CLEP comes in can be found at this Web site: http://www.admissions.purdue.edu/transfer_credit/College-level_Examin.html.
