Enrollment Information

Open Enrollment

Open enrollment period for the spring semester begins the first business day of December and ends at 5:00 pm on the first business day of February.

Those international students who do not have an approved waiver on file by the deadline will:

  • have a hold placed on their account
  • have to purchase the Purdue Insurance plan
  • incur a $200 late fee

If the above deadline date falls on a weekend, the deadline is extended to the following Monday at 5 p.m. ET (Eastern Time).

Annual vs. Semester Enrollments

We encourage students to enroll and pay for the Annual plan. Though a student has the option of enrolling separately for Fall and Spring/Summer, it is more advantageous to purchase the Annual plan. Students must meet the eligibility requirements only once if the annual plan is purchased. When purchasing Fall and Spring/Summer separately, the eligibility must be met at the beginning of each coverage period. In the event of a serious illness or injury prohibiting a student from returning to class for Spring/Summer, charges incurred after January 1st would not be covered due to ineligibility for insurance.
