Spring into Application Prep!

Planning to apply to a professional program in the upcoming cycle this spring/summer? We are here to support you. Meet with a pre-professional advisor to create your application plan.

Visit your future application site and professional organizations (found on the Career Guides available on our Career page in the first drop-down box for that field). Also, if you have an admission test to take for your application, start learning all about it as early in your academic career. We are happy to be here for you and to answer any questions!

  • Are you an alum with a question? Call us at 765-494-3981 to make an appointment or email questions to preprofessional@purdue.edu.
  • Need a quiet place for an online interview? Request a room in our offices.
  • Need assistance with your pre-professional goals? We're here for you. Make an appointment to see one of our advisors on BoilerConnect. Our appointments are virtual by default since the resources you will need in the future are mostly online. In a virtual appointment we can more easily share these in a way that you can save them directly into your system. If you would like an in-person appointment, email us and we will gladly set that up.
  • Having trouble scheduling a meeting with a PPA advisor or finding a time that fits your needs? Email us at preprofessional@purdue.edu to request assistance.
