Readmission and Appeal

If you have been academically dropped from Purdue Fort Wayne and wish to reapply you should review the following information carefully. This material will help you understand the readmission process and requirements to get you back on track to Purdue Fort Wayne.

Readmission to Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering program is not automatic or guaranteed, and it’s your responsibility to understand and complete all of the steps in the readmission process. Please visit https://www.pfw.edu/admissions/apply/returning to apply for readmission.
