(LAFAYETTE) - Purdue University is acquiring Kaplan University and launching a new, public online university.

Enrollment will be aimed at non-traditional degree seekers and people looking to beef up their work credentials.

As part of the deal, Purdue will absorb Kaplan's 15 campuses and learning centers, 32,000 students and 33,000 employees.

The new university will use the Purdue name in some fashion, but the official name has not been released.
