Purdue moving to the Common Application
High school students applying to Purdue will have a new system to file their paperwork. It’s called the Common Application, and more than 500 other colleges and universities use it already.
Purdue Admissions Director Mitch Warren says this will streamline the process for students and allow them to focus more on preparing for college during their senior year of high school.
Students fill out basic information, such as their name, address, and high school, once, so they don’t have to repeat it for every application. The Common Application then asks for Purdue-specific information from the students.
The system goes live August 1. November 1 is the Early Action deadline to be considered for merit scholarships and the Honors College, as well as for the Nursing and on-campus Veterinary Technology programs.
