Additional Information


  • Early application is encouraged. There are a very limited number of funding opportunities that require the application be approved by early February for a Fall Semester start. Other funding opportunities may arise throughout the year depending upon available funding. Applicants are strongly encouraged to pursue funding from agencies and organizations that are outside of Purdue. Program capacity is limited and it is recommended that students apply early to maximize opportunity for program consideration.
  • The admissions process selects highly qualified applicants into the PhD program by considering the application in judging the overall strength of the applicant. Typically, no single criterion is used as a sole determinant for admission. After the application is completed by the student, strong candidates may also be asked to participate in discussions or interviews with program faculty during the application review process.
  • At this time, Purdue University is not certified by the Department of Homeland Security to offer visa eligibility documents to international students who are admitted into this program. For additional information please contact International Student Services by emailing ISS@purdue.edu.
