right, officially PUG graduates are also member of Purdue Alumni Association with same benefits as graduates from other Purdue campuses. Similar vibes as Harvard Extension School graduates to Harvard Alumni Association.

That is very true, generally you can't change the school where you graduated from

Purdue University Global is an online program that is much easier to get in & more affordable. They accept ACE credits as well.

Purdue University's online degree programs have the same admissions standard as real campus programs.
https://polytechnic.purdue.edu/degrees/o...logy/apply
Also, they charge the same tuition rate as real on-campus students. Their rate is over $1k per credit.

They offer master's degrees only. No ACE credits accepted.

A degree obtained through PUG is a degree from Purdue University. It says so on the main Purdue site. Purdue campus grads can complain all they want about the school offering courses online. But if the school says the degree is from Purdue, who are we to say otherwise?

It's literally a separate institution.

Wikipedia gives a decent enough explanation:


Quote:Purdue Global operates as a separately accredited institution within the Purdue University system, is the only institution in the system operating as a public-benefit corporation, and the only in which 12.5% of operating revenue are redirected to it's prior for-profit owner Graham Holdings Company.[46] Each campus of the Purdue University system has its own accreditation, leadership, faculty, programs, and admissions policies

A degree from PUG is NOT a degree from Purdue U. Purdue issues different diplomas for each campus as each campus is its own school and is not THE Purdue. PUG is an entirely separate entity from Purdue. The degree does NOT say it's from Purdue. It says Purdue Global University. PUG is VERY clear that it is NOT Purdue.

Each campus also issues their own diplomas with the campus name on it. For example, Purdue Fort Wayne is not Purdue. Their diplomas and transcripts all say Purdue Fort Wayne. When Purdue made this change, students were really upset because they could no longer say they were Purdue grads but instead are Purdue Fort Wayne grads. Same thing with PUG. It's all kind of a funky set up. It's very different than other university systems.

I think it's a confusion between "Purdue University" and "Purdue University System."
