We Believe in Your Talent
Purdue Global was founded on the belief that every person with talent, regardless of age or circumstance, deserves the chance to develop it. We recognize the value of real-world experience and previously earned credits to ensure no eligible student wastes time or money on courses and skills already attained.
We Believe If We’re Not Right for You, Then You Shouldn’t Be Financially Obligated to Us
The Purdue Global Commitment is a way for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you. There's no financial obligation. It's available to new undergraduate students, online or on campus. It's simple. Here’s how it works:
- Enrollment: You’ll attend real classes for real credits. These classes count toward your degree if completed.
- Week 1—Introductory Period: You’ll begin the 3-week introductory period, during which you’ll get exposed to our curriculum, faculty, and classroom or online platforms. If at any point during the introductory period you decide we’re not right for you, you can opt out with no tuition cost or other financial obligation to Purdue Global.
- Week 3—Checkpoint Week: The checkpoint week marks the end of your introductory period, and is the time to let us officially know if you no longer wish to continue. Otherwise, if you’re meeting our academic standards, and have submitted all required documentation, you will move forward with your Purdue Global education.
- Week 10—First Term Ends: If you meet all academic and course requirements, you will earn your course credits and continue your degree path.
We Believe in Support That Begins Before You Enroll and Prepares You for Success After You Graduate
You'll get personalized support from a network of financial, student, and admissions advisors. They take into account the individual demands of your life. Whether it's explaining your financial aid options or helping you select the right courses for you, you won't be on your own.
Once enrolled, you'll learn from professors who bring valuable, real-world experience. Along the way, you can take advantage of career services including resume workshops, interviewing and networking webinars, and our alumni network.
We Believe a University Should Adapt to Its Students—Not the Other Way Around
We understand nontraditional students—working parents, late bloomers, career changers—have obligations beyond school. As a university that's student driven for driven students, you'll attend classes in a flexible learning environment with schedules designed to fit your life.
With the freedom to take classes online, on your terms, you have the opportunity to meet academic requirements without sacrificing personal or professional duties.
We Believe in Surrounding You With Faculty and Advisors Dedicated to Your Success
Our online Math, Science, Technology, and Writing Centers offer support whenever, wherever you have an internet connection. Our professors are just a click away. You can email them directly from the classroom or contact them during online office hours.
