CODO

The demand for enrollment in some majors in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute currently exceeds the resource capacity to meet that demand. For this reason some departments must limit CODOs based on a semester-by-semester analysis of the total department enrollment. Upon completion of viewing the CNIT CODO Online Tutorial or CODO presentation slides, applications can be submitted to a CIT advisor. Applications will be processed after the semester grades are posted.

 

There are two GPA levels that students can qualify for CODO application (beginning Fall 2017 and includes students pursuing a CODO into Cybersecurity)*:

  • 3.25 cumulative GPA and a C- or higher in required courses will be accepted automatically.
  • 3.00 cumulative GPA will be accepted on a SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS after a holistic review.

*Students are evaluated based on CODO requirements that were in place when the student matriculated. However, if the student leaves Purdue-WL and has to go through the re-entry process to return, they can be held to new CODO requirements. All other requirements remain the same (i.e. completion of required courses, online tutorial, and submission of signed CODO papers).  See GPA requirements effective for students who matriculated onto catalog terms prior to Fall 2017 below.

*There are two levels that students can qualify for CODO application (prior to Fall 2017):

  • 3.25 cumulative GPA and a C- or higher in required courses will be accepted automatically.
  • 2.80 adjusted GPA (calculated by all courses you have taken at Purdue that fit into the CIT plan of study) will be accepted on a SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS after a holistic review.

To be eligible to CODO into or to pursue a dual degree in Computer and Information Technology: 

Step 1- View the pre-recorded CODO video presentation and complete the online quiz.  

 

Step 2- Complete and submit the following during CODO Walk-In Office Hours:

  • Completed CODO Quiz
