College of Science: No Count Course List

College of Science: No Count Course List

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, click on the departmental link 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 outcomes may be met with No Count coursework.
