MS(F) Admissions and Requirements

Admissions Deadline

Because the MS(F) program begins on July 11, 2016 (with classes starting July 12, 2016), applications will not be considered for admission from MS(F) applicants outside the United States who graduate after July 2016.  International students must be able to prove documentation (diploma or degree certificate indicating a degree conferred and date received) for a 4-year degree by July 2016 to apply for and be eligible to enroll in the MS(F) summer semester.  We ask students that are unable to provide such documentation to consider applying next year.

  • Application Round 1 (Early Round) is September 1 – November 15.
  • Application Round 2 (Priority Round) is November 16 – January 15.
  • Application Round 3 (Final International Round) is January 16 – March 1.
  • Application Round 4 (Final Domestic Round) is March 2– April 1, or until classes are full.

To find out whether classes are full, please contact the Purdue MBA and MS Programs Admissions Office.

MS(F) Requirements:

While full-time post-baccalaureate work experience is not required for admission to Purdue’s MS(F) program, many MS(F) students do enter the program with one or more years of relevant experience. The median work experience for recent MS(F) classes is two years, but about half of our program’s students have less than one year of full-time experience. However, those coming straight from an undergraduate program often have significant co-opportunity or internship experiences. Applicants to the MS(F) program may submit the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) in lieu of the GMAT

The MS(F) program also has a minimum requirement of 77 for the TOEFL Exam.
