Paying for Courses

Financial Assistance

There are a number of financial assistance options to help defray the costs of enrolling in a graduate professional program.  These include Stafford loans, graduate PLUS loans, military programs, and loans from private lenders. Through myPurdue, you can monitor your financial aid funding and make sure the proper payments are made in a timely fashion. * As of May 26, 2019, students taking online courses whom reside in California are not eligible for Federal Student Aid *

Installment Plans

If you're enrolling in the fall or spring, you can sign up for a payment plan to avoid making one large payment each semester.  You'll be charged 25 percent of your fees when you enroll, as well as 8 percent APR on the amount deferred.  You'll then pay off the balance in three equal payments over the course of the semester.

Third-Party Payment

If your employer or a tuition assistance program is covering the costs for you, we'll invoice them directly after the last official drop day for students.  The third party will also need to send a voucher or written approval, on letterhead, to the Purdue University Bursar, Attn: Chad Lester or fax to (765) 494-6988.  The approval must include:

  • Full name of the student and his/her Purdue University ID (PUID) number
  • Course number(s) and title(s)
  • Company name and billing address
  • Amount of fees being covered
  • Any restrictions or conditions on what payment will cover
  • Length of sponsorship (dates the fees will cover)
  • Billing contact name, phone, fax, and email
