CODO Procedure and Advising

A Change of Curricula (CODO) occurs when a Purdue West Lafayette student requests to transfer to a program in another college or school in the University. To prepare for a successful CODO, students should review and meet the requirements which have been set forth by the College of Science for their program of interest. CODO requirements vary within the College and are not negotiable.

Step 1:

Work closely with your academic advisor in your current college/school in the selection and completion of coursework that will meet the CODO requirements of the program you would like to pursue in the College of Science.  You will need to meet with your current advisor to obtain a CODO Form (FORM 705) to initiate the CODO process.

Step 2:

Connect with the College of Science for more information about your intended major. 

Step 3:

Submit the CODO Form (FORM 705) signed by your current college/school AND the College of Science CODO Information Form (NOTE: these forms are fillable PDF forms.  If you cannot fill in your information online, you may want to try a different browser) to the College of Science Undergraduate Education Office in MATH, Room 231 to start the CODO process.

 The following resources will help you in navigating the CODO Process:


Requests to Change Programs within the College of Science

The University CODO process is not employed when a student requests consideration for another program in the College of Science. When this occurs, College CODO requirements for the requested program are applied to determine if a change of program may be approved.
