Enrollment Options

On-Campus

Students who opt to live on campus during Early Start will have the opportunity to get to know campus before 43,000 students arrive for the fall semester, participate in small classes alongside other Purdue students, and develop lasting friendships. Students will maximize their summer by completing up to 9 credit hours. The cost of tuition and fees for 6-9 credit hours is $2,498 for Indiana residents and $7,198.50 for domestic non-residents. 

Students will live in Earhart Hall during summer. Early Start students opting to live on campus during summer must complete two housing contracts - one for the 2020-2021 academic year (Fall/Spring) and one for Summer 2020. Students will move to their fall housing assignments by August 10th to allow time to prepare your summer room for the fall semester. Housing is offered at a discounted rate of $1,250 (13 meals per week plus $125 Dining Dollars) for five weeks and $2,000 (13 meals per week plus $200 Dining Dollars) for eight weeks. Check out our summer housing website for more information and the link to the summer housing contract.
