Purdue Fast Start Program

Purdue Fast Start program offers Students assured admission, college credits and dollar savings

Through Purdue’s new Fast Start program, Indiana families can save thousands of dollars.

Fast Start, created by Purdue in partnership with Modern States, is designed to help Indiana high school students earn access to up to a year of college credit through free online courses and the corresponding College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams. Students receive assured admission into Purdue if they complete five courses, pass the corresponding CLEP exams and meet the University’s standard admissions requirements.

Fast Start will allow Hoosier students to take online courses and CLEP exams at no cost. Passing five CLEP exams — the equivalent of one semester — can save students and their parents the cost of an entire semester, and almost $11,000. And passing 10 CLEPs — the equivalent of one full year — amounts to more than $21,000 in savings when considering Purdue tuition and housing. Every individual CLEP passed is a big savings. Additionally, the Fast Start option can move students toward early graduation and early entry into the workforce.

Purdue Fast Start offers support to high school students enrolled in the program, helping guide them through taking courses and tests, and navigating Purdue admittance. Students also can connect to Purdue alumni and friends for mentoring if desired. Once Fast Start students accept admission into Purdue, they will be known as Klinsky Scholars.

The program officially launches in Fall 2020, with inaugural students granted admission for the Fall 2021 semester.
