Accept Your Offer

Follow the steps below to accept your offer.

The first step to officially becoming an Honors Boilermaker is to accept your Purdue University offer of admission. Learn how to accept below. Note: You must accept your Purdue offer of admission no later than May 1, 2022.

Once you have accepted your Purdue offer of admission, you can accept your Honors College offer of admission. Note: Accepting your Honors College offer of admission is a separate process and must be completed by May 5, 2022.

To accept your Honors College offer, log in to your myPurdue Online Portal. Locate the task item Honors College Admission and follow the link to accept your Honors College offer. A check mark will appear next to the task once it is complete.

If you recently accepted your Purdue offer of admission, please allow 24 hours for your Honors College offer acceptance to become available.

 Please contact us at with any questions.

Students interested in living in an Honors Residential Community (on-campus housing in University Residences) should visit the housing website for information about availability and contracting. 

The on-campus housing contract is available via myPurdue to students who have accepted their admission offer. To increase your chances of receiving your preferred on-campus housing in an Honors Residential Community, you are encouraged to submit your contract by April 15. There is a short delay of approximately 2 days between the time you accept your offer and when you can access the housing contract in your myPurdue portal.  Therefore, accepting your offer by April 13 should ensure the contract is available to you by April 15.

The contract for University Residences will remain open until May 5; if you sign a contract after April 15, your housing preferences may not be met.

The Honors College cannot sign housing contracts for honors students. If students wish to live on-campus (University Residences) in an Honors Residential Community, then they need to sign a housing contract. If new first-year students miss the May 5 housing contract deadline, they will not receive an exception in connection with their Honors College affiliation. Students will need to contact the University Residences Central Assignments Office and request placement on the housing contract waitlist if interested in on-campus housing.

Please direct any housing contract questions to the University Residences office at
