Teacher Programs Resources and FAQs

How do I apply to Purdue?

If you have not taken a graduate level course from Purdue University West Lafayette within the last three previous semesters, then you need to complete the online application and be admitted to Purdue before you can register for any courses. The application fee is waived for non-degree-seeking students.

More information can be found at The Graduate School.

Can I use the employee benefit-related fee remission for courses offered by Digital Education?

No, Digital Education provides an extensive array of continuing education, professional development, and workforce training opportunities for working adults. Because these programs reach beyond the University’s typical audience of on-campus students, they do not use state monies. They are conducted on a financially self-sustaining basis, such that all expenses associated with the activity must be met by student fees or other external revenue. Because of this requirement, Purdue staff fee remissions and other University-based remissions do not apply for Digital Education-administered activities that are designed to serve nontraditional learners on a self-supporting basis. For a definition of self-supporting programs, see University Policy V.B.4
