We are constantly looking at new ways to use the database to increase the productivity of Graduate School staff and the departmental staff at Purdue. We are currently looking at ways to use the database to:

  • Decrease the time it takes to get the proper paper work to/from international students
  • Allow departments to admit people electronically
  • Increase the amount of information an applicant gets from the "Check Status" web page

If you have ideas for the web database, please share them with us. Email your suggestions to
