VU-Purdue partnership offers direct transfer for engineering majors
February 12, 2019 / VU-Purdue partnership offers direct transfer for
VINCENNES, Ind. - A Direct Admit transfer agreement between
Vincennes University and Purdue University offers students the
benefits of a focused, quality education and seamless transfer to one
of the most highly regarded colleges of engineering in the nation.
The VU/Purdue Direct Admit agreement allows VU engineering
graduates who meet specified criteria to be directly admitted to
Purdue for completion of a baccalaureate degree from the Purdue
College of Engineering.
This agreement provides a unique combination of accessibility,
affordability, and opportunity. Students will take their first-year
classes at the VU Jasper Campus and their second-year classes at the
VU Vincennes Campus. Classes will take place in labs and classrooms,
rather than in large lecture halls, offering students direct access to
VU’s affordable tuition rates make it possible for students to
save enough in their first two years to pay for a full year at a
four-year college. And students will graduate from VU confident that
they are well prepared for upper-level classes and that their credits
will transfer with ease.
This agreement follows a long history of partnership between
Vincennes University and Purdue University. "In addition to the
previously established agriculture track, I'm excited to welcome
engineering as another Purdue pathway available on the Jasper Campus.
This will allow residents of Dubois County and the region to pursue a
Purdue degree locally," noted Christian Blome, assistant vice
president and dean of the VU Jasper Campus.
Details about the VU/Purdue Direct Admit agreement are
available by contacting the Jasper Campus, 812-481-5918.
