A new agreement will allow Vincennes University engineering students direct admission to the Purdue University College of Engineering. The collaboration launches this fall and builds on previous agreements between the universities.

VU Provost Laurel Smith calls the arrangement a "genuine partnership" and says "we are excited to build on the longstanding 2 + 2 articulation agreement for engineering that Purdue and Vincennes have maintained for many years. With the direct admission pathways, qualified students will benefit from excellent instruction at a reduced cost in order to enter engineering professions with significant opportunities in our state and beyond."

Purdue Engineering Dean Leah Jamieson says "the direct admissions agreement adds an important dimension to the existing partnership between Purdue and Vincennes. Most importantly, it represents the commitment of both institutions to continuing to grow the higher education opportunities in the state of Indiana."

To be eligible, Vincennes students must complete an associate’s degree and meet guidelines including grade point average. VU and Purdue have previously partnered on agreements involving agriculture, engineering, and science degrees.
