Change of Curricula (CODO) into Exploratory Studies


To be eligible to CODO into Exploratory Studies, a student must have no more than 83 completed college credits.

Credit counted toward completed college credits includes: credit earned by exam, transfer credit, credit earned in P/NP courses, credit for courses in which students earned Fs, and credit for currently enrolled courses.

In addition:

  • Students bringing into Exploratory Studies 77 – 83 completed college credits should be able to complete the requirements necessary to CODO to a degree-granting college/school/program (CSP) at the completion of one semester in Exploratory Studies.
  • If students can CODO from their current program to the degree-granting CSP they are seeking at the end of the current semester, they are not eligible to CODO to Exploratory Studies. If they end up not being able to CODO to that degree-granting CSP once grades come out, then they can CODO to Exploratory Studies for the next semester.
  • If students have already enrolled in classes for their last semester of eligibility in their current CSP and IF they do well will be able to CODO to their CSP of choice at the end of that semester, they may not CODO to Exploratory Studies just so they can register for the next semester classes. Instead, they should wait for grades to come out and CODO directly to their CSP of choice and then register for the next semester’s classes with their new advisor.

NOTE:  All students CODOing into Exploratory Studies during their first year of college MUST take EDPS 10500 “Academic & Career Planning" while in Exploratory Studies.
