Purdue : Graduate Program Requirements

To be considered for graduate admission at Purdue University, applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university.

Those with three-year baccalaureate degrees from countries that do not participate in the Bologna Process may also be considered for admission on a case-by-case basis, through a holistic review process.

To be admitted without conditions, applicants for master’s or doctoral degree programs should have achieved a minimum grade point index of 3.0 or equivalent from their previous institution.

Some graduate programs may have additional requirements that exceed the general graduate school requirements.

The application requirements and deadlines vary by program, so it is recommended to contact the program directly for more information.
