As a student admitted for the Summer semester, below are your next steps to accept your offer and enroll at Purdue. Click on each step for more detail.
myPurdue is the online portal through which you will conduct business with the University now and once you are enrolled. Your portal provides a "new student task list" and indicates when you have completed the necessary steps to enroll. To gain access to your myPurdue portal, you must activate your online career account via the account activation website. You will need your Purdue University ID (PUID) number and your career account setup password, both of which were provided in your admission offer letter. View a PDF of how to activate your career account (Size: 464 KB).
Accept your admission offer. Students admitted before May 1 to begin in the summer term must accept their offer by May 15. Students admitted after May 1 have three weeks (or until the start of the term) to accept. A nonrefundable $400 deposit will be required to accept your offer. The deposit will be applied toward first-semester fees and the housing contract fee (if you contract with University Residences).
Students interested in on-campus housing in University Residences should visit the housing website for information about availability and contracting. Information about off-campus housing, including cooperative housing, fraternities and sororities and area rental properties also is available online.
May 1 is the priority deadline to apply for Learning Communities. Spaces are limited and placement announcements are made in early June.
ALEKS is a free, required online math assessment you should take at least one week before registering for classes. You will gain access to ALEKS through your myPurdue portal beginning April 15. For more information about ALEKS, visit the Math Department website.
Fee statements will be sent to your @purdue.edu email address and accessible through myPurdue.
Boiler Gold Rush is the new student orientation program held the week before fall classes begin in August.
Purdue requires final grades from any coursework completed prior to enrollment, and it is your responsibility to ensure we receive official documentation (including any final transcripts). Purdue's expectation is that admitted students will maintain a consistent level of academic performance, and we reserve the right to rescind an offer of admission to any student who demonstrates a significant decline in grades between admission and enrollment.
