Is This My Cohort?

You are part of the 2011 cohort if you first enrolled at Purdue in fall 2011 and qualified for one or more of the following scholarships:

  • Purdue Promise (must also have been a confirmed 21st Century Scholar)
  • Emerging Urban Leader (EUL)

Important Notes and Policies for My Cohort


In the semester that you plan to graduate, you must register for Candidate Status. This gives you access to the Graduation tab in myPurdue. If you do not plan to graduate by August 2015 (4 years), please contact your Purdue Promise Coach for guidance pertaining to your degree plan and financial aid.

Financial Aid

Because you are in your fourth year at Purdue, you may be nearing the time when you will exhaust your eligibility for certain types of financial aid. If you do not plan to graduate by August 2015, you will also need to be planning for financial aid for the next school year. You should review the following resources.

Purdue Promise Support Program

2014-2015 Fourth Year Support Statement

As a Purdue Promise Program Participant (regardless of scholarship status), I understand that I should:

  1. Strive for academic excellence. This includes attending all of my classes, studying regularly, and remaining in contact with Purdue Promise staff, academic advisors, TFCS College Mentors, and course instructors.
  2. Utilize Purdue Promise academic support resources (including tutoring and free printing) and/or seek referrals from my Coach to other academic ( and personal support resources.
  3. Seek leadership and professional development opportunities either within Student Success at Purdue or elsewhere within the University. I understand that leadership and personal development can be satisfied by a number of experiences. Such examples include undergraduate research, study abroad, internships, community service, employment, and student organization membership.
  4. Attend periodic open study and social hours hosted by Purdue Promise to meet new people and engage with program staff and student leaders.
  5. Work with the Student Employment Office to secure an on-campus job if I am offered Federal Work Study funds and I am seeking employment.
  6. Update Purdue Promise staff and myPurdue with any changes in my contact information.
  7. Discuss with a Purdue Promise staff member any concerns I may have regarding financial aid, employment, and/or personal life issues that may negatively affect my academic performance. Also address with my Purdue Promise Coach any of the topics noted on the “If you’re thinking about …” handout to be certain my scholarship(s) are not jeopardized.
