STEP 1: When you are ready to CODO, talk to your current academic advisor, and obtain their signature on a CODO form.

STEP 2: Once you have the form with signature from your current department, obtain a signature from the unit to which you intend to CODO. Signatures may be obtained at a CODO Advising Information Meeting or by contacting HHS Student Services at 765-494-8533 to schedule an appointment.

STEP 3:Take completed forms to the Office of the Registrar in Hovde Hall, Room 45.
