Accept Your Offer
Students who are admitted to Purdue have until May 1 to accept their offer. The majority of students wait to accept their offer until the last few weeks in April, but we hope to increase the number of students accepting their offer early and to generate excitement about becoming a Boilermaker.
How and when (denote if evergreen, no specific dates) should these resources be used?
This Accept Your Offer content package is perfect for all schools and colleges as they yield students during the spring semester. It can be used on social channels until 11:59 p.m. May 1. It is a great way to engage with students and families as they embark on this exciting decision. You can choose between social assets or the “Step Inside” trailer.
