Purdue Global is Part of the Renowned Purdue University System

Purdue West Lafayette was founded in 1869 as Indiana’s land-grant institution. The Purdue University system serves students through its flagship campus in West Lafayette, a network of regional campuses and technology centers across Indiana, and now Purdue Global, which can be accessed online at any time.

Purdue’s main campus in West Lafayette is one of the most prestigious research universities in the world. It routinely ranks highly in accredited national and world university rankings like the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education for its distinguished academic programs.* These rankings demonstrate Purdue’s commitment to providing a higher education at the highest proven value.

In April 2017, Purdue reinforced its status as one of the world’s most innovative universities by announcing it would acquire Kaplan University, a longtime leader in online adult education, and create a new, public institution—which is now Purdue Global.
