Electronic Graduate Application

Application Form

Your application will be reviewed by the admissions committee online.

Integral parts of the Electronic Graduate School application are your Uploaded Transcripts, CS Supplementary Form (PDF), Statement of Purpose, your Letters of Recommendation, and proof of English Proficiency.

For an accurate evaluation of your application you must list your GPA for every institution of higher education attended and the name of the degree program.


Name: If you have a passport, list your name exactly as it appears in the passport. It is very important to use exactly the same name throughout the entire application process. Inconsistencies in the name you use can be disadvantageous, particularly if we have to use your name to associate materials (for example transcripts, official TOEFL and TSE reports) with your application.

Campus: "West Lafayette (Main Campus)."

Proposed Graduate Major: Computer Science

Entry Term: Fall is the main session of entry.

Area of Interest: Select ISCP only if you want to apply to the Professional Master's Degree in Information and Cybersecurity program. Research Areas can be selected in the department specific pages of the application.  

Degree Objective:

Select "Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)", if you are interested in earning a doctoral degree in this department. You can achieve a Master's on the way to the Ph.D.

If you select "Master of Science (MS)", you must choose either “On-Campus” or "Distance (online or off-campus location)" under Course Delivery Method. As on-campus MS student you may follow the doctoral program from the time you enter just as if you had been admitted to the doctoral program. If you decide on the doctoral program later, you may continue with the permission of the Graduate Study Committee.

The "Non-Degree" objective is available only to local residents or applicants participating in an exchange or study abroad program. Access to courses may be severely limited. If this is your objective, ask the Computer Science Graduate Secretary (494-6004) for instructions.

The "Professional Degree", "Educational Specialist", and "Teacher License" are not available as educational goals in Computer Science.
