How to Switch to Early Start

Below are the steps to switch into our Early Start program:

  1. Enter your Purdue Application Portal
  2. Select the "Reply Forms" tab
  3. Complete the Early Start form (see image below for what your "Reply Forms" tab should look like, including the Early Start form)
  4. Wait for the next steps email to arrive in a few days. You may see some items on your New Student Task List change until your switch is fully processed. You will also likely receive an automated email saying you have canceled your admission for the fall term. This is normal because your starting term will be updated from Fall 2024 to Summer 2024 so you can take classes early. You then continue on to the fall semester.
