Rules for CODOing Out of Exploratory studies

All USP students must CODO (or transfer) from USP to one of Purdue's 10 colleges and schools in order to earn their degree. The amount of time a student can remain in USP depends on how the student came to USP.

  • Students who begin their college career as freshmen in USP can remain in USP for up to four semesters (not including summer school).
  • Students who come to USP from another college/school at Purdue or as a readmit, reentry, or transfer student can take a maximum of 60 credits while in USP or 95 total college credits, whichever occurs first and is the more limiting. Credits by exam, transfer credits, Advanced Placement/CEEB credits, etc. all count toward a student's total credits. All credits a student attempts while in USP count toward the total number of credits the student can take as a USP student.
