We encourage you to consider making a campus visit. This enables you to meet with potential faculty advisor(s) and current graduate students, get a feel for West Lafayette, and put your “face with the name” on your application. We suggest you first contact the faculty member you are interested in working with to determine if they are available and identify good dates for a visit (usually October, November, and early January for fall applicants). Then contact the Graduate Coordinator to inform him/her of the visit date. The Graduate Coordinator will help you schedule meetings with other key individuals in our department.
