The TLI department takes pride in the success of its students and the diversity offered by students coming into its programs from other majors.  Each student is individually reviewed, and the admission decision is based on the overall academic performance.

CODO applications are accepted throughout the year and are processed as follows:

  • First two weeks of the fall, spring, or summer semester:  CODO applications are reviewed weekly and approved applications are processed effective for the current semester per University Regulations.
  • Week 3 through 16 of the fall, spring, or summer semester:  CODO applications are reviewed weekly and approved applications are processed effective for the next semester or the semester stated on the CODO form.

NOTE:  If you are switching majors WITHIN the Polytechnic Institute you DO NOT need the Change of Curricula Form.

NOTE:  If you are a first-year student and you have a Presidential or Trustees scholarship, you must remain in the major to which you were originally admitted for at least one year full academic year.  If you change majors during your first year you will relinquish your scholarship.
