*International students who are, or will be, inside the United States and wish to participate in Early Start at the West Lafayette campus must enroll in a minimum of 6 credit hours.  No more than three credits hours delivered in an online or distance format may count toward the minimum enrollment requirement.  Students traveling from outside the United States must be physically present at the West Lafayette campus a minimum of 14 days before their classes begin so they may complete the mandatory self-quarantine.

***Some majors may require differential fees.

Financial Aid 

Complete the 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1, 2021, to maximize your eligibility for free money. This is the only FAFSA you will need for Summer 2021, Fall 2021, and Spring 2022. Students will also need to apply for summer aid in your myPurdue portal. More information will be included in the Next Steps email after switching to Early Start.

The first round of fall financial aid award notifications were distirbuted during February 2021. New notifications roll out weekly. 

Please contact the Division of Financial Aid by email at or call 765-494- 5050 with any questions you might have about financial aid. We know it can be confusing!

Once you’re ready to pay tuition, please visit the Office of the Bursar webpage. Tuition is due July 12, 2021.  We also encourage students to review the add/drop calendar from the Office of the Registrar.
