Database Project

In Spring 2024, it was announced that Purdue University has partnered with Salesforce to build a new Graduate Records Management (GRM) system. This GRM will replace the GradDB which is used by the College of Engineering and some areas in the College of Science and will also replace the Graduate Student Database (GSDB) which is used by all graduate programs within the Purdue system. The GSDB houses plans of study, exam forms, and other central graduate student processes.
