Apply to Purdue University Fort Wayne to take the first step toward a campus full of possibilities. First-time students will need their high school GPA, a Core 40 diploma (for Indiana residents) or a strong college-prep curriculum, SAT or ACT exam scores (not required but highly recommended for engineering programs), and Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores, if applicable.

If you are a home-schooled student, student with international records, or an applicant who has been out of high school for more than two years, find our application requirements on our website.


If you completed college credit after graduating from high school, you are eligible to transfer to Purdue University Fort Wayne. You’ll have the chance to earn a world-class Purdue University degree while enjoying the flexibility of adjustable class schedules, on campus and online. And we’re here to support you through each step of your path to graduation.

As a transfer student, you need only two things for consideration: your high school transcript and college transcripts from all colleges or universities you attended. Not all courses will transfer or apply to every major, but your Purdue Fort Wayne academic advisor can help provide additional information about transferring credits.
