Schedule an Appointment

Purdue is a large university and it can be difficult to figure out who do you contact with questions.  We can help!  Please find below office phone numbers and targeted links to resources you can use to gather important information.  We understand that you will have different sorts of questions at each stage of your transition to Purdue, so look for your specific situation below:


Prospective Students

Wondering if Purdue is the right school for you? The best way to find out is to come and check out campus for yourself! Campus visits for prospective students are managed by Purdue's Office of Admissions. We recommend customizing your visit- meet with Admissions, visit with Exploratory Studies, shadow a Purdue Student, and so much more!

If you'd like to meet with someone from Exploratory Studies, please contact our Recruitment Specialist, Ashlyn Shaffer, to schedule a visit.

Admitted Students

Once you are admitted to Purdue, we understand you might still have a lot of questions about the registration and transition process.  Calling these offices, rather than e-mailing, allows their staff to be able to quickly determine your needs:

Transfer Students

If you are a student who is currently attending another college or university outside of Purdue, please call (765) 494-0843 and our reception desk will forward you to the correct Exploratory Studies advisor to answer your questions.  Transfer admissions and credit transfer questions should be directed to Purdue's Office of Admissions at (765) 494-1776.

CODO-in Students

If you are a Purdue student who currently belongs to another college or school and you want to CODO into Exploratory Studies, please call (765) 494-0843 to set up a CODO-in appointment.  These appointments usually last 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

Current Exploratory Studies Students

If you are a current Exploratory Studies student and would like to make an appointment with an advisor, please use our online calendar or call (765) 494-0843.  If you have questions about the registration process, please refer to our Registration page.
