Counselor Update - Need to Know  

Mid-Year Reports

Purdue requires a mid-year report for students who have applied to Purdue and received a "pending/additional information" status. We recognize that this adds to your to-do list and thank you for your help. Here's what you need to know:

When: Now is the time to send in seventh semester transcripts for freshman applicants who were pended.

Who: In mid-January status reports were sent to all high schools. The reports list all freshman applicants from that school and the status of their applications with Purdue. If a decision has been made, the decision is listed.

Why: A "pending/additional information" decision means the Admissions Committee reviewed the student's completed application and determined that it needs additional information before making a final decision.

How: Mid-year reports can be sent through the Common Application or through Naviance eDocs. For Purdue it's important that you use the Common App's "Mid-Year Report" document type (not the "Optional Report" document type). For pended students, use of the optional report document type could cause processing delays.

What students know: Students who were pended have received an email with information about their status and their decision has reverted to "incomplete." This is because we are now waiting for the requested, additional information before we will complete our evaluation of their application. Students can view their status using their Purdue application portal.
