Current Students

Exploratory Studies will help you explore a future that fits!

As a current Purdue student in Exploratory Studies, you’ll work closely with your academic advisor to select a major that is a good fit, to choose classes, and to learn CODO requirements, but that’s not all! Your advisor also can be a great source of encouragement and support as you pursue academic success and a sense of belongingness at Purdue University.
