Applications for Ph.D. Only
If you are applying only for the Ph.D. program, you must submit materials only via the Purdue “Apply Yourself” Online system.
Materials to be submitted to Purdue University via the “Apply Yourself” system:
- Online "Apply Yourself" application (Graduate Application)
- Statement of Purpose. (Guide to Writing a Statement of Purpose)
- Resume or curriculum vita. This is an optional field in the application system, but is recommended by the department.
- List of 3 recommenders.
- Application fee
Official GRE scores (Purdue’s institution code is 1631; no department code needs to be specified)
Official transcripts from all institutions attended. International transcripts must be sent to Purdue in their original form and in translation, along with copies of any diplomas awarded. Any transcripts sent electronically through an approved e-service (e-SCRIP, etc) must be sent to the Graduate School at email@example.com. This delays the receipt of the transcript to the department, so paper transcripts are preferred. Please send transcripts to the SLHS Graduate Program Secretary.
For those whose first-language is not English, we require official test scores less than 2 years old from one of the following: TOEFL iBT or IELTS (see link for International Students).
