Admitted Student – Online Deposit Information
Access Graduate School Admission Notification
- To access your Graduate School Admission notification you will receive two emails from email@example.com. The first email will contain a username and the second will contain a password. Use the username and password to access the email admission notification.
- View the admission email from the Graduate School. This is a two-page letter. It is important to vie the second page as this is the “Personal Information Sheet” that contains your 10 digit PUID. You will need your PUID to activate your career account.
- Within 5 business days of viewing your admission email from the Graduate School, you will be sent another email from firstname.lastname@example.org that will contain your initial account set up PIN.
- Once you have received your PUID and initial account set up PIN, you will be ready to activate your career account.
**If you have not received your email from email@example.com, please check your spam or junk email folder.
Activate Career Account
Purdue University provides all faculty, staff, and students with a Career Account. This account provides access to a number of electronic services at Purdue University, including online payment and your @purdue.edu email. This account is yours to use for as long as you are affiliated with Purdue University. You must activate you Career Account in order to submit your confirmation deposit online. Please follow the following steps to activate your account.
- Go to https://www.purdue.edu/apps/account/AccountSetup where you will enter your 10 digit PUID, date of birth, and initial account set up PIN (password). Once you are logged in, please follow the instructions provided.
- If you are having problems logging into the career account activation site, note that the initial account set up PIN is case sensitive and should be entered exactly as it is listed in the e-mail. Also be cautious of characters and numbers that may resemble each other (examples include ‘O’s’ and zeros, ‘B’s’ and eights, ‘l’s’ and ones and ‘G’s’ and ‘Q’s').
- Please be sure to memorize your career account alias/username and password as you will use it to access many online services at Purdue University.
- If you encounter problems during the career account activation process, please contact the Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP) Help Desk at (765) 494-4000 or visit http://www.itap.purdue.edu/help/
- Please do not configure your @purdue.edu e-mail during the career account set up process as this will be covered during the Program Launch.
