To be clear, regarding transcripts:

Official transcripts will be submitted to CSDCAS prior to January 1st and used for application review. These must be official transcripts.

Transcripts will be submitted to the Purdue Graduate School via the application system. 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. 

Updated transcripts will be sent to the Graduate Program Secretary to verify coursework.  These do not need to be official transcripts. 

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.

Contact the Graduate Program Secretary with any questions.
