For those people here who are not US citizens, but have expressed an interest in Purdue, I found out today that Purdue is no longer restricting the flight program to US citizens. Effective June, 2001, the Department of Aviation Technology will consier international applicants who are competitive. This isn't for anyone specifically, but I know that there are a lot of non-Americans here, and I know of at least a few who expressed an interest in Purdue only to find out that they weren't eligible.

AFAIK, they only instituted this policy in 1995 due to a shortage of spaces. Prior to that, they had higher standards for international applicants (and warned that there was slim to none chance of acceptance), but they were not specifically excluded.

That's interesting... I didn't know why the restriction existed, but, if that's the reason, it would seem odd for the restriction to be lifted. The AvTech program remains one of the two most selective programs in the University (Veterinary Medicine is the other). When we replaced our primary fleet last year, we added one extra airplane, but the class size has not increased.
