Purdue Global offers students the services noted below.
Center for Career Advancement
The Center for Career Advancement is a student-focused provider of career assistance and is available to degree-seeking students currently enrolled and to eligible graduates. You have access to additional resources online 24 hours a day, and experienced staff will collaborate with you to create and implement career plans by providing support and advice.
Recognizing that career development is an ongoing, lifelong process, the Center strives to help you understand the importance of self-assessment, occupational exploration, decision making, goal setting, networking, the job search, and developing productive connections in the workplace. The Center offers a collaborative link between students, faculty, and prospective employers within the global employment community. It seeks to foster a welcoming, accessible environment where diversity is celebrated and the uniqueness of each individual is valued and respected.
The Center staff will assist in your job search. Many students choose to work on a part-time basis during their training to help with their education costs. If you require assistance in securing part-time employment while attending classes, staff will make reasonable efforts to assist in your search. Additional services include assistance with job search planning, resume and cover letter review, interview preparation, decision making, job offer negotiations, and various other job search and career-related issues.
Career assistance offered by the University is not an obligation or guarantee of employment. Although the University will assist you, finding a job is ultimately your responsibility. The University does not guarantee that you will be placed in any particular job, or at all. Some jobs may require additional training, certification, or experience.
No employee of the University is authorized to guarantee that a graduate will earn any specific amount. Your program of study, employer needs, current economic conditions, and other factors may affect wage levels.

If you require other types of professional assistance, the University will refer counselors or agencies you may contact.
Student Health Services
Purdue Global does not provide health services for students. In the event of a student medical emergency, an alerted staff member will dial 911 for medical services. If you require nonemergency medical care, you will be given information about medical services or agencies that you may contact. Any costs incurred for medical services will be your responsibility.
Drug and Alcohol Abuse Awareness and Prevention
In compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (Public Law 101-690) and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments (Public Law 101-266), Purdue Global provides you with a Drug-Free Schools and Workplaces information package on an annual basis. This includes descriptions of the legal sanctions under local, state, and federal law for unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illegal drugs and alcohol; a description of health risks associated with the use of illegal drugs and the abuse of alcohol; and a list of any available drug and alcohol counseling, treatment, and rehabilitation programs.
Crime Awareness and Campus Security
In keeping with the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, Purdue Global makes available to all current and prospective students and employees the University's policies and procedures for maintaining onsite security. This information provides details of measures for preventing crime, instructions for reporting crimes or suspected crimes, and a record of crimes that have occurred at each Purdue Global location.
You may obtain the Campus Security and Drug-Free Campus/Workspace Reports (or a copy of the reports) by accessing the Annual Security Policy or requesting a paper copy via Admissions or the Student Finance Office.
