Undergraduate Application

Instructions to apply for an undergraduate program are available at Purdue Admissions Undergraduate Students

International Undergraduate Notification of Intent

After Purdue Admissions has admitted you, follow instructions to gain access to your Purdue University email address and watch for the MyISS Notification of Intent (NOI) email.

Purdue University Email Access

You will need to follow "New to Purdue?" instructions to gain access to your Purdue University email address.

Notification of Intent eforms

The ISS database is updated with your admission within a week and will then send an email to your Purdue University email address to confirm access and instructions for the MyISS Notification of Intent (NOI) online forms, which serve to confirm your intention to attend Purdue University and your international status.

When completing the NOI, you must attach scanned images of your official financial support documents, and your passport (and dependents, if applicable) showing the legal spelling of your name before an immigration document will be prepared and mailed.

We review the information you provide on the NOI form in addition to your source(s) of funding, and any other required documents as listed on the form. If everything is complete, a Form DS 2019 or Form I-20 is issued.

The Form I-20 or DS 2019 along with a valid passport, financial documentation and receipt for payment of the SEVIS fee (if required), are needed to apply for a student visa at a US embassy or consulate. For more information on the visa application process, please see Prepared to be WOW'ed: A Guidebook for ISS WOW!

If you are accepted, the department will forward your application to The Graduate School.

Each department has Graduate Program Heads, Graduate Committee Chairs, and Graduate Program Departmental Contact Persons.

Step 2 The Graduate School

The Graduate School reviews your application and makes the formal admission decision.
If you are accepted by The Graduate School, you will be notified by email. The admission letter that you will receive has important information about ISS Notification of Intent (NOI) requirement.

ISS's database will be informed of your admission within a week and send an email to your Purdue email account confirming you have access to the online NOI eforms. To access your Purdue email, follow "New to Purdue?" instructions.
