In these unprecedented times, it is critical that our Agriculture students have access to the frequently updated announcements and resources in order to be as successful and safe as possible. This page will be updated as often as changes are communicated to the College of Agriculture.

  • Consider Online Classes – Review the list of online classes available this fall, and consider if taking a class online or in-person is the best option for your safety and the safety of others. Talk to your advisor to learn more.

  • Students with COVID-19 Health Concerns – This page is maintained by the Disability Resource Center to address student concerns about returning to the on-campus experience this fall.
  • Protect Purdue – A newly established group, called the Protect Purdue Implementation Team, is dedicated to safeguarding our students, faculty, staff, and Purdue community as a whole.

This website is updated frequently, so be sure to keep an eye out for updates to safety measures and restrictions.
