Purdue University International Students collection, 1930-2002 | Purdue University Libraries, Archives and Special Collections
The Purdue University International Students collection, (1930-2002; 0.8 cubic feet) is comprised of statistical reports of degrees conferred for international students from the Office of the Registrar and other printed material related to international students at Purdue.
The front of each statistical report contains these notes:
“Purdue University system definition: Purdue University has administrative and external reporting responsibilities for the entire Fort Wayne campus (IPFW) and therefore maintains data for both Indiana University and Purdue University students. Information about Indiana University students at IPFW is included in this report. All students at Fort Wayne are included in Purdue University System figures.
Degree data for Purdue University students at Indiana-Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI) are maintained and reported externally by Purdue University. Therefore, Purdue degrees awarded at Indianapolis are included in this report.
Totals for the Purdue University System include West Lafayette, Statewide Technology, Calumet, Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne, Purdue Indianapolis and North Central.
Certification and Double Majors: Summary tables of Cooperative Education and Undergraduate Teaching Certificates are included. These certificates are awarded in conjunction with baccalaureate degrees.
Double majors (two majors within one school) are counted as a single major.”
The reports include degrees by school, program, session and gender.
Please note that the 1997-1998 reports are for “ethnic students.” The statistics are broken down as follows; degrees by school, program, session and gender for, African America students, American Indian students, Asian American students and Hispanic American students and include a total for all groups.
