Financial SupportFinancial support is available for all qualified and admitted graduate students in the form of graduate research assistantships and fellowships. A tuition waiver accompanies these assistantships and fellowships. In addition, assistance is provided in applying for fellowships sponsored by external agencies.
Deferment of AdmissionOnce you have been admitted into the School of Nuclear Engineering, it is possible to defer your admission for up to one year. To do this you need to send a letter or email to the contact at the bottom of this page, explaining why you need to defer your admission. The Graduate Chair will review your request and your file. Subject to the Graduate Chair's approval, your request to defer your admission will then be forwarded to the Graduate School for official approval. Once this is granted, you will receive a letter from the Graduate School. Please note that an approved deferral is guaranteed for up to one year ONLY. If you have been offered funding, your funding may not be guaranteed with your deferral.
Reapplication ProceduresStudents who have been denied admission or whose application was incomplete may reapply according to the following procedures. The Graduate Office can reuse transcripts from previous applications less than one year old. You must update your file by submitting a new Purdue Graduate School application, application fee, statement of purpose, and two copies of official transcripts from all universities attended since your last application submission. We also require three new recommendation letters. Please note that you may not reuse previous recommendation letters. Be sure to indicate on the top of every form that you are reapplying, the previous semester applied, and the semester for which you are currently applying.
**Please note that previous admission does not guarantee future entrance into the School of Nuclear Engineering. Also, previously denied applicants have only a very slight chance of a positive decision upon reapplication.
