Welcoming students from all backgrounds, we are dedicated to expanding our outreach and bringing the world within reach for those who never thought it possible. Here, students can be part of our momentum as we connect students to the United States and the world and prepare students for a career. 

We are the largest university in northeast Indiana, offering more than 200 internationally recognized Purdue University degrees and certificates. More than 14,000 students of diverse ages, races and nationalities attend PFW. Students come to our university from 43 states and 68 countries. Diversity is part of our campus culture. We understand the value to a university and its community when a broad curriculum, new ideas and different perspectives are embraced.

As an ISEP student, you can build your own program by choosing your courses from a variety of fields. Use the notes for course searching to help you find which courses are available.

PFW has world-class faculty and technology resources to support student research. Cutting-edge science and engineering labs, state-of-the-art computer labs and a well-stocked library (over one million volumes) are the pre-requisites for research.


Students will have an individual room in a 4 bed-2 bath floor plan that includes a full kitchen and living area. Amenities include: study areas, a gym, computer labs, billiards, volleyball and basketball courts, outdoor kitchens, and more. 



ISEP exchange students will be provided a stipend to cover food expenses. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchen so students enjoy grocery shopping and cooking on their own.

Other Academic Conditions

The following programs have many prerequisites and will require special permission: education, business, engineering, computer science, communication sciences and disorders. Some courses like science, art and others may require an additional lab or materials fee. Some courses may be restricted to non-degree seeking, exchange students. Be sure to read the pre-requisites or ask questions of the ISEP advisor while selecting courses. For example, independent study is not available to ISEP Exchange students. PFW recommends 200-300 level courses for ISEP Exchange students. Some programs or classes may require an advanced placement in English or math to be eligible to take certain classes. Engineering and chemistry require calculus-level placement or prerequisite courses. The ISEP Coordinator will help students navigate those requirements, placement tests, and will work with each department in the university to assist in course registration before and after arrival. 

Because of the nature of the degree, nursing, education, dentistry and some music classes are closed to exchange students. 

PFW is willing to accept Duolingo English test as an alternative to other English assessments such as TOEFL and IELTS.
