Change of Degree Objective (CODO)
Change of Degree Objective (CODO) means to transfer from one curriculum to another within the University. The Department of Consumer Sciences and Retailing welcomes CODO students who are truly interested in our majors. CODO requirements for HHS majors.
All HHS students are expected to:
- Fulfill all requirements for graduation
- Honor prerequisites and course sequencing
- Honor course enrollment limits; accepting the fact that if a class is full or restricted to students who are currently in the major, they will have to postpone their enrollment to another semester
- We will be happy to work with each prospective CODO student to develop a realistic plan of study. Upon receipt of this plan of study, we expect each student to decide if this plan fits his/her timeline for graduation.

Transfer Credit and Credit Evaluation
Transfer credit is credit earned at another accredited college or university and accepted by Purdue. The University will accept transfer credit only for work done at those institutions fully approved by a regional accrediting association of secondary schools and colleges or those whose regional accreditation designation is Associate/Vocational-Technical (A/V) when agreements with academic departments exist that specify courses or blocks of credit that will transfer into specific Purdue University degree programs. Students may wish to take courses at another university (i.e. summer classes). To ensure the courses will apply to your plan of study and will be accepted as transfer credit, use the Transfer Credit Database to create a report. Follow this procedure:
- Discuss your plans with your Academic Advisor.
- Visit the Advanced College Credit/Transfer Credit page on the Admissions Web site.
- Select courses from the transfer institution or from Purdue University to generate a transfer credit evaluation report.
