Information for Prospective Students

At Purdue University, the Office of Admissions is the primary resource for the Purdue Application process, and handles admission for undergraduate students into the College of Engineering. Admitted students enter the First-Year Engineering Program, through which they complete foundational coursework (usually two semesters). 

Upon completion of the First-Year Engineering Program, students will transition to one of the professional schools of engineering that matches their personal area of interest. Criteria for acceptance into the professional schools is based on a student's overall GPA and their Engineering Admission Index (EAI).
