Other Financial Aid

A student may receive up to the equivalent of six full-time years of Federal Pell Grants. Visit the Federal Pell Grant website to learn more.

Subsidized loans are determined by "years," not "terms," and eligible students get six years of federally subsidized direct loans. Students may receive unsubsidized federal loans until they borrow their federal aggregate loan limit or until they reach the satisfactory academic progress maximum time frame.

Any questions can be directed to the Division of Financial Aid at Purdue.

You can visit the Office of the Bursar for current tuition and fee rates. Did you know that in the summer you pay the same amount for taking six credit hours as you pay for taking nine credits?
