Updating college application
There is a simple yes/no question on the freshman application (Common Application or Coalition Application) to ask whether the applicant is interested in applying to the Honors College.Those who say yes to this question and meet the Nov.If you are admitted, your counselor is asked to send us your final grades for the senior year with the Final Report.Admission is conditional upon your successful completion of the senior year.Students will now be able to see any and all test score submissions via their Purdue application portal, both the date they took the test and the date Purdue received their scores.We will always use best available score and do not require SAT Essay or ACT Writing.The application deadline for Honors College consideration is also Nov. All students who meet this deadline will be considered for university-wide institutional grants and scholarships that are based on financial need.The process to be considered for Purdue’s Honors College is changing this year.
For example, Princeton’s website says the following about senior year grades: It is important that you continue to excel in your classes during your final year of high school.
Purdue now uses self-reported courses and grades for freshman applications – for admission, scholarship and Honors College decisions.
We do not need transcripts when students apply, but for admitted students who accept their offer of admission, we will use final, official transcripts to confirm all grades before they enroll.
We don’t expect minor errors to affect admission, scholarship or Honors College decisions, but egregious errors could result in rescinded offers.
Students who recognize an error after they have submitted their application will have the ability to submit updates through their application portal.
