  3. Attend an HHS CODO advising information meeting. Advising meetings are strongly recommended.

    During the meeting, an academic advisor will review:
    • the academic unit, its majors and why students select them.
    • careers associated with these majors.
    • the requirements and process to CODO to the major.
    • answer any remaining questions you may have about the major, opportunities, CODO process

Register for an advising meeting here. If you experience problems registering, please e-mail hhscodo@purdue.edu.

Complete the CODO Process:

STEP 1: When you are ready to CODO, talk to your current academic advisor, and they will initiate the online CODO request process.

STEP 2: Check your Purdue email regularly for messages related to your CODO request, and follow all instructions therein. 

Advisors will be available to meet with students who want to CODO into an HHS major, add a second major or degree, or HHS students who want to switch to another HHS major, from May 6-June 7 and July 15-August 16, 2019. Advisors may not be available from June 10-July 12, 2019, due to New Student Registration.

STEP 3: Check myPurdue to see your new major and new advisor after a CODO request has been approved.

***If you are a first-year student and you have a Presidential or Trustees scholarship, you must remain in the program (major) to which you were originally admitted for at least one full academic year. If you change programs during your first year, you will relinquish your scholarship. See important notes regarding scholarships here.
