I. Requirements - Changes of Curricula (CODO) To Agriculture
To be eligible for consideration for a Change of Curricula (CODO) to all College of Agriculture majors except Agricultural Engineering, Biological and Food Process Engineering, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering, and Pre Landscape Architecture, you must fulfill the following conditions.
• A minimum of 12 Purdue credits must be earned and posted to your record.
• A minimum 2.00 grade point average is required for consideration. Space limitations in some majors may require you to have greater than a 2.00 cumulative grade point average.
Pre Landscape Architecture
• A minimum of 24 Purdue credits must be earned and a minimum of two semesters must be completed. See the College of Agriculture catalog for the listing of Pre Landscape Architecture courses that must be completed.
• A minimum 2.50 grade point average is required for consideration.
Entry into the Pre Landscape Architecture major is restricted to the fall semester. An academic advisor interview is required. Completion of LA 10100 is strongly encouraged, but not required prior to initiating the CODO request. The application deadline is at the end of the spring semester for the following fall. If you meet the above stated requirements and have an unadjusted cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher after two or more semesters, you may automatically be accepted into the Pre Landscape Architecture major upon submitting the CODO forms.
You will be placed into a CODO "hold" status if you have met the stated course requirements, and have a cumulative GPA of 2.50-3.49. Acceptance into Pre Landscape Architecture will be determined on a space-available basis in mid-June. If you are on academic probation at the completion of the spring semester, you will not be considered for admission into the Pre Landscape Architecture program. Contact Robin M. Tribbett in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture if you need additional information.
Due to space limitations, Change of Curricula applications to Food Science will be reviewed at the end of each semester and students will be notified if their application has or has not been approved. Strong performance in 10000 and 20000-level mathematics and science courses is necessary to be successful in the Food Science major.
Agricultural Engineering, Biological and Food Process Engineering, or Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering
• A minimum 2.50 cumulative grade point average is required for consideration.
• Successful completion of courses listed in the "Pre Agricultural and Biological Engineering" major in the College of Agriculture catalog or "First-Year Engineering" curriculum in the College of Engineering catalog.
• One must be in good academic standing, Your mathematics and science grades are subject to review and approval.
Core courses in Biochemistry are defined as CHEM
115/116/255/256, BIOL 231, BCHM 361/462/463 or 561/562/463. Biochemistry
students and students wishing to CODO into Biochemistry must earn or have
earned grades of C- or better in CHM 115 and CHM 116. In addition, Biochemistry
students are expected to earn grades of C- or better within all of their core
All students seeking to CODO into
Biochemistry must meet with a Biochemistry advisor. Please contact Sherry
