To be clear, regarding transcripts: Official transcripts will be submitted to CSDCAS prior to January 1st and used for application review. Transcripts will also be submitted to Purdue prior to February 15th, but after any Fall grades post, and used to verify that any courses previously in progress have been completed and passed. The Graduate School will also use these transcripts for admission purposes. The transcripts that you upload to the Purdue system must be copies of regular transcripts issued from the institution as opposed to a student record printout that you can access on your own.  Complete, official transcripts will be requested by the Purdue Graduate School after you have been admitted and should be sent directly to them as directed in your offer of admission. International transcripts must be submitted to Purdue in their original form and in translation along with copies of any diplomas awarded. Any official transcript sent electronically to Purdue must be sent via eSCRIP-SAFE, Docufide, Parchment Exchange or directly from the accredited U.S. college and university and can only be sent to the Graduate School at

Your application will not be processed until both applications are received. You will receive a status email once your applications are matched up and pulled for processing.
