Purdue Online

Purdue Online classes are a common way for you to complete your graduation requirements without physically taking classes on Purdue’s campus. Typically, these programs are eligible for financial aid as long as a current year FAFSA has been sumbitted.

For all financial aid eligible Purdue Online programs, you’ll follow the same process of submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see what aid options you may have for your program. 

If you are a degree-seeking student and meet financial aid and citizenship requirements, you may be eligible for the Federal Direct and/or Grad PLUS Loan programs. To be considered for these, be sure to complete your FAFSA and that you are enrolled at least half-time. Explore these loan options

Financial assistance may also be available from private loan programs

You can borrow up to Purdue’s estimated cost of attendance, which includes allowances for fees and travel.
