WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Several Saint Joseph’s College students have shown interest in transferring to Purdue, according to the university’s president.

As News 18 has been reporting, Saint Joseph’s College is closing temporarily because of financial issues.

Purdue offered to assist the students affected and waive the $60 application fee.

Purdue President Mitch Daniels said Thursday many of those students have had conversations with Purdue’s admissions department.

He has no doubt they would be successful students at Purdue.

“We know that students who have shown an ability to handle college work for one, or two or three years are very likely to have the determination, the study skills that make for success on our campus,” Daniels said.

Saint Joseph’s College will suspend operations beginning June 1.
