Opportunities for You

If you have questions about the process or
wish to plan a visit, please contact:

We encourage high school students in their junior year to start making college selection decisions.  A visit to campus can help you determine which major is right for you.  If you are interested in visiting with an academic advisor in the department, please contact Julie Pluimer using the information at the bottom of this page.

We strongly recommend that you apply as early as possible in your senior year.  For 2012 enrollment, Purdue will begin releasing admission decisions after 5:00pm EST on Friday, December 9, 2011.  To ensure thorough evaluation of each application, the Purdue Admissions Committee requires at least 6 weeks to make a decision after an application is completed (including receipt of standardized test score and high school transcript).

March 1 is Purdue's priority application deadline.  However, applying between the months of August and October is strongly recommended in order to receive an admission decision in a timely fashion.

To learn more about applying to Purdue, including costs, financial aid, and student life, visit the Purdue University Office of Admissions.

Purdue has a strong tradition of helping students and their parents finance education through grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study programs.  Purdue University, the College of Agriculture, and the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology have established several scholarships to reward academic excellence at the undergraduate level.
Please note that your application must be complete by November 15 for maximum consideration for all Purdue scholarships. A complete application includes all required materials including ACT or SAT test scores (including writing), high school transcript, and application fee.
