Student Frequently Asked Questions



How is the 2020 Midwest Summit adjusting to a Virtual Experience?

Since we can't meet face-to-face this year, we are bringing the opportunity to explore graduate school to you. This event website will be transformed into a Virtual Experience for you to learn about the graduate school application process through workshops and helpful resources as well as connect with top-ranked Purdue programs and other institutions, including Big Ten schools. 

How do I register for the 2020 Midwest Summit?

Registration for the 2020 Grad Expo Virtual Experience will be free for students! Once the event goes live, you will need to register in order to enter the site. To be notified when registration opens, join the mailing list! We look forward to meeting you virtually!

If I attended the Midwest Summit last year, can I participate in the Midwest summit this year?

If you attend the Midwest Summit in this year, you are more than welcome to attend in the future. 

Application Fee Waiver

I saw that if I attend the Midwest Summit, I can have my Purdue Graduate School application fee waived. If I have already applied to Purdue's Graduate School, can my application fee be reimbursed if I attend the Midwest Summit?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to reimburse application fees. In order to qualify for the application fee waiver, you must attend the Midwest Summit first, and then apply for graduate admission at Purdue. Instructions for receiving the application fee waiver will be e-mailed after the event to everyone who attended the Midwest Summit. Note that students who register for the Summit but do not attend are not eligible for the application fee waiver.
