NOTES AND CONDITIONS

*Students are responsible for understanding the requirements of optional certification exams. The University cannot guarantee students will be eligible to sit for or pass exams. In some cases, work experience, additional coursework beyond the Purdue Global program, fieldwork, and/or background checks may be necessary to be eligible to take or to successfully pass the exams.

Refers to recipients of the Advantage Tuition Grant. Depending on the alliance partner, the Grant may cover the difference between eligible alliance organization employee tuition assistance and the cost of completion of a Purdue University Global degree. Students who choose to take out supplemental loans are responsible for their repayment in full, including interest and fees, and thus do not receive a no-cost, debt-free education.
