Make Education Attainable
The cost of earning a college degree is rising. For undergraduate students showing financial need, the typical financial aid package covers only a portion of tuition and fees. Most students rely heavily on loans to pay for their education. Purdue also must compete fiercely for the nation's most talented graduate and professional students, who receive offers of generous aid packages, including full tuition and other enticing benefits.
