PURDUE UNIVERSITY FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
To apply for federal, state and Purdue University student aid programs, you will file the FAFSA — this is something you’ll need to do annually to be considered for aid each year you’re in school. Purdue’s priority deadline is March 1.
If you are an admitted student to Purdue and submit your FAFSA by this deadline, you can expect to hear back about your award offering sometime in late March or early April.
Before completing your FAFSA, you’ll need to create a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID. If parents are helping in the aid process, make sure one of them registers for an FSA ID too.
What You’ll Need:
- A computer with Internet access
- Your Federal Student Aid ID
- Your Social Security number
- Income information for the current year (or the prior year if you’re going to use an estimate) for both student and parents (unless you qualify as an independent student)
- A current, valid email address to be contacted with important information about your financial aid
You can also print a “FAFSA on the Web” worksheet at FAFSA.gov to complete ahead of time and help prepare your answers before entering them online.
What You’ll Do:
- Go to FAFSA.gov and click “Start A New FAFSA,” then login using your name, Social Security number and birthday.
- Select “Start New FAFSA” and then input the requested information.
- Be sure to enter Federal School Code 001825 to allow your information to be sent to Purdue University West Lafayette.
There are several funding options for Purdue graduate students to explore, including assistantships, fellowships, grants loans, and other financial aid. Financial support for graduate students at Purdue is primarily awarded in the form of assistantships and fellowships. Over 60 percent of graduate students at the University are on assistantships.
Most funding decisions, including assistantships, are made by each individual graduate program. Some programs fund all of their graduate students, although others fund only a few or provide only partial funding support. Some funding opportunities are open for student applications, but others are faculty-awarded and therefore not open for applications.
