We provide support for several specific groups of students around campus. The 21st Century Scholar program helps Indiana families afford college with a focus on low to moderate family incomes. We provide additional support to eligiable 21st Century Scholars, Emerging Urban Leaders, and Purdue Opportunity Award Scholars with our Purdue Promise program. This program adds additioal support and development focussing on social, leadership, and life skills. We also have Horizons to aid first generation, disabled, or low income students.

Veterans and non-traditional students are also supported by Student Success. We have a Veterans Success Center in the Union to provide a one stop shop for those students. Span Plan provides services to positively impact personal, academic, and career success of adult non-traditional students.
