Many promising Indiana students will now have the opportunity to take their first steps toward a Purdue degree with the new Purdue Fast Start program. Purdue's partnership with Modern States, a philanthropy and online learning program for earning college credit, provides free courses and textbooks online plus vouchers to pay for credit bearing exams. Passing five courses, the corresponding CLEP exams, and meeting Purdue's standard admissions requirements assures admission into Purdue. This partnership will create new opportunities for Indiana students to take giant leaps in your education with a new pathway to Purdue University.

HOW 

Through the Purdue Fast Start program, students will be able to make their own giant leaps a reality by earning access to affordable, high-quality education at Purdue.

To earn admission into Purdue, Indiana students can take the Modern States online courses for free. Those who pass a minimum of five corresponding College Board CLEP exams and meet Purdue's standard admission requirements are assured admission to Purdue and designated as Klinsky Scholars.
