Transfer from Purdue West Lafayette

Thinking of transferring from our West Lafayette campus? To transfer financial aid eligibility to another university check out our steps below!

Forward your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Information can be forwarded to Purdue University by going online. You’ll need Purdue’s school code (001825) to send aid over. We will determine eligibility for need-based aid using the FAFSA. Keep in mind that we may request documents to verify FAFSA data, but please only send verification documents if they are requested. Forward your FAFSA information on the Federal Student Aid website.

If you have received a Health Professions Student Loan Program (HPSL) loan

Have a financial aid transcript sent to your new university from each institution where you received an HPSL loan. You can do this at Purdue by contacting the financial aid office and making the request.

If you have an award from the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE)

Contact them directly to change your school choice; this can be done online on your ScholarTrack account.

If you have a scholarship awarded to you from a private award donor (something other than from Purdue)

Contact the donor to determine if the award can be used at your new university, and notify them that you will be attending the new school so they can forward any awards.

If you received the first disbursement of a Federal Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Educational Loan at your previous institution

Contact our office and request that we cancel the second disbursement of your loan and notify your lender. You’ll have to reapply for remaining loan eligibility at your new institution.

If you want to transfer from the West Lafayette campus to a regional campus on a temporary basis

Consult with the regional campus admissions office regarding admittance to a degree program. If this is not possible, consult with a financial aid counselor.
