Preparing Students for College

Taking college courses will help establish a solid foundation for transitioning to Purdue, but also wherever students choose to attend college. Students will be immersed in the college experience as they attend real Purdue courses alongside current students.

Affordability and Accessibility

Our land-grant mission starts from the premise that the life-changing benefits of higher education must be open to all who are ready and able to meet Purdue standards. Thus, multiple options are available to in-state and out-of-state students to fit your budget.
