Purdue University is a major research university founded in 1869 to further the study of agriculture and engineering. Its 1,579-acre campus is located in West Lafayette, a large town 65 miles northwest of Indianapolis on the banks of the Wabash River. Purdue University has regional campuses in four other cities, two of which are jointly administered with Indiana University, and in 11 locations throughout the state where the School of Technology’s statewide delivery program is offered. Purdue is on a semester system.

Purdue University offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in over 200 different programs in its 12 academic schools. The list of recommended high school courses for admission is a range: For general admission, the minimum is necessary; for selected programs (agriculture, science engineering, health sciences, management), the upper levels of math and science are needed.

Distance learning plays a significant role in Purdue University’s Instructional mission. Last year, 9,505 learners participated in 132 West Lafayette-based distance learning programs, in which learners are separated from instructors by place or time or both. These include credit and noncredit courses delivered by two-way videoconferencing, videotape, the Internet, and correspondence. Learners include college students, engineers, school administrators, pest control and healthcare workers, and other. In accordance with Purdue’s March 2000 Strategic Plan for Distance Learning, distance learning programs are administered by Continuing Education in cooperation with the academic units. Continuing Education also assists faculty in conceptualizing, developing, delivering, and administering distance learning activities. Programs to enhance faculty use of distance learning strategies are offered by Continuing Education and the Multimedia Instructional Development Center.

Vincennes University, founded in 1801 as Jefferson Academy and incorporated as Vincennes University in 1806, is the oldest continuously operating institution of higher education west of the Allegheny Mountains and north of the Ohio River. William Henry Harrison, the first governor of the Indiana Territory and later President of the United States, was the first chairman of the Board of Trustee of Vincennes University.

By the late 19th century, Vincennes University had specialized into one of the first junior colleges in America. It has long been recognized for its leadership role in developing innovative one-and two-year academic programs.

Vincennes University Jasper Campus was developed cooperatively by Vincennes University and COHERE, Inc., in February 1970. COHERE (Committee on Higher Education and Related Events, Inc.), was a Dubois County citizens action group dedicated to the improvement of education and cultural enrichment for the area. It was founded by concerned citizens in 1960 and, having fulfilled its goals, was dissolved in 1978.

Vincennes University Jasper Campus is located on a 130-acre tract south of Jasper on Indiana 162. This permanent facility opened in 1974. Major building projects in 1987, 1990, 1998 and 2007 have provided the Vincennes University Jasper Campus with classrooms, a library, a student center, administrative offices, and the Indiana Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Education, and various Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, and Associate in Applied Science degrees and Certificate of Graduation are awarded through the Jasper Campus.

CAP courses are taught by carefully selected high school faculty who are trained in special workshops by USI faculty members.

If you have taken any course work that could be considered for transfer credit—university level/dual credit courses, Advanced Placement (AP) or CLEP—please be advised that this could alter the courses you will want to register for.
