College of Science No Credit Course Lists
The College of Science has identified courses that do not meet any College of Science degree requirement. While similar, No Count course lists vary between departments.
To review your department’s No Count list, see below. Students pursuing more than one program should consult each department’s No count course list.
Duplicate course policy: A course will become a no count or duplicate course when a student completes two courses of similar content. This situation can occur when a transfer course (Ex. AP/IB/dual credit) shares significant content with a Purdue course. Students should consult with their advisors to ensure they are not completing duplicate coursework.
UCORE (University Core) outcomes may be met with No Count coursework.
Overlapping Course Content (PDF): These courses are considered to have overlapping course content. Only one instance of an overlapping content course will apply toward graduation requirements. Courses listed in the individual blocks by group are representative of the overlapping relationship. Check your online degree audit or consult an advisor for further questions.
