Purdue Resources

Purdue offers a wide variety of resources that are available to you, even as off-campus students. Check out some of them below.

The Purdue Center for Career Opportunities

The Center for Career Opportunities (CCO) serves as a centralized Career Services office for the West Lafayette Campus. We offer multiple services for students, alumni, employers, faculty and staff.


Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP) is Purdue’s central computing support organization. The website includes information about student accounts and storage on the Purdue network and wireless Internet access on campus.

Purdue Libraries

You will have access to Purdue’s campus libraries, which provide access both on and off-campus to a wide array of databases and other research tools.


Purdue offers a feature called myPurdue that gives you access to your financial information, your grades, graduation details and other relevant information. Financial aid information is NOT on myPurdue. It is in the Indiana University SCOPE system.

To access this page, you need a career account login username and password. Information on how to set up the account and password information comes via e-mail from the graduate school.

To set up your Purdue Career Account

1.      Look for an email from Purdue University Graduate School ( The email will have the subject line: Your Career Account Password.

2.      Follow the directions in the email to access MyPurdue. By the way, your career account user name is not the same user name as for the Purdue Grad School Application.
