Information for Transfer Students

Once students are admitted to Purdue, they are then admitted to individual majors.  Therefore, transfer students must meet both Purdue's overall transfer criteria and any major-specific requirements. Before you apply, check the closed programs page to confirm that Exploratory Studies is open to transfer students.

Specific Exploratory Studies transfer requirements:

  • Minimum overall college GPA: 2.7
  • At the time of enrollment, CANNOT have more than 30 graded hours (or the equivalent quarter or trimester hours) of courses taken in college or 45 graded hours of college courses and concurrent/dual high school credit combined.
  • Transfer students are required to enroll in EDPS 10500 during first semester on campus.
"Taking EDPS 105 my first semester at college helped me to learn more about myself and what I want to pursue in a degree and career. The community my advisor created in class definitely made the transition to college a little easier." -Audrey P.
