“Once Purdue Promise, Always Purdue Promise”
The “Once Purdue Promise, always Purdue Promise” commitment means all scholars will be offered continued support regardless of maintenance of “on scholarship” status.
Purdue Promise assists program participants through Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) appeals (for loss of all financial aid), Merit Appeals (for loss of Purdue Promise and/or Emerging Urban Leader awards), and State appeals (for loss of 21st Century Scholars awards). Students should contact the Purdue Promise program coordinator for assistance.
