HAMMOND | Purdue University Calumet and College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Ill., have articulated a 2+2 academic agreement that enables a seamless transfer track leading to a Purdue baccalaureate degree.

Implemented this fall, this initial articulation between the two institutions provides graduates of the College of DuPage's Associate of Applied Science in Construction Management degree transfer admission into PUC’s Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and Engineering Technologies program.

“This agreement certainly benefits Purdue Calumet and our Department of Construction Science and Organizational Leadership,” PUC Department Head Anthony Gregory said. “Additionally, students from College of DuPage benefit in that they now have a clear path to follow that will allow them to continue their education in the construction management field to the B.S. degree level.”

According the agreement, College of DuPage graduates may transfer and apply to the PUC baccalaureate degree program up to 66 credits from courses in which they earned a grade of “C” or better. Accumulation of an additional 64 credits at PUC is required to earn the baccalaureate degree.

“This is an excellent opportunity for College of DuPage students to continue their education at one of the top construction management programs in the country,” COD Architecture Professor Jane Ostergaard said. “The construction industry is continuing to become more complex, and advanced credentials are important for our students as they prepare themselves for careers in this field.”
