When you submit your application, you will be presented with a printable preview. At this point, you can edit your information, print it, or continue by submitting the final version to the SURF office. Once submitted, you will no longer be able to make changes to your application, but you will be able to view and print it.

When the final submission is complete, the following emails will be sent:

  • A message to you with the URL for your application
  • A message to your Purdue faculty member (if you specified one) asking them to complete the Project Information & Recommendation Form for you
  • A message to the SURF office indicating your submission

To complete the application process, submit your official university transcript to the SURF office. Your official transcript should include all grades and coursework through the current session. Purdue students can obtain a transcript by going to the Registrar's office kiosk outside Room 45 in Hovde Hall, or online through MyPurdue. Non-Purdue students should contact their student services office and have the official transcript mailed directly to the SURF office.

The SURF program is very competitive. Qualified applicants should take the application process seriously and provide all required documents by the deadline.
