Change of Degree Objective

(CODO)

Requirements to CODO

To CODO into Krannert, you’ll need to meet the below requirements. Your specific requirements are based on your term of entry to Purdue West-Lafayette. Select the academic year in which you began classes at Purdue for your CODO requirements.

The Covid-19 pandemic has necessitated some one-time exceptions to our Admission Index requirements for the Krannert School of Management. These exceptions are for courses taken in the Spring 2020 semester and include grade mode and retake policies. Please read our FAQs below on how certain changes might impact your admission to Krannert.

You are urged to work with your academic advisor prior to making any grade modality changes or enrolling in a retake of an Admissions Index course.

Pass = C- or higher is a pass

Not Pass (NP) = D+, D, D- or F

Passing(P):

If a student receives an P in an AI course:

  • We will allow the P to be used in the Admissions Index(AI)
  • It will not help or hurt the student as it will be reviewed similar to transfer credit
  • A P would not be calculated into an AI average
  • The course is complete
  • A student still needs to reach the required AI GPA
    • A P will not be included in your AI GPA calculation. You may need a grade in remaining AI course(s) to meet the AI GPA requirements.
    • Some students might need to have a course for a grade to mathematically meet the AI requirements
  • A student who takes a course as P and ends up not meeting all other requirements, can choose to retake the course at a later semester but will need to take the course for a grade
  • A P will not count as one of the attempts at a course if a student needs to retake it later they would still have 2 graded attempts remaining to meet the requirement (just like not counting a W/WF)

If a student receives an P in any MGMT, ECON, OBHR (MEO) course(s) taken prior to Upper Division:

  • We will allow the P to be used for the MEO course requirement
  • The course is complete

 

Not Passing (NP):

If a student receives an NP in an AI course:

  • NP will not work as completing the AI requirements
  • A student who takes a course and gets an NP will be required to take the course at a later semester for a grade only
  • A NP will not count as one of the attempts at a course (just like not counting a W/WF)
  • A student would need to retake the course and would still have 2 graded attempts to meet the requirement

If a student receives an NP in an MEO course taken prior to Upper Division:

  • NP will not work as completing the MEO requirements and would prevent a student from moving to upper division or CODOing
  • Student must retake for a grade

For Industrial Management students who receive an NP in the required CHM/PHYS courses:

  • NP will not work as completing the CHM/PHYS requirements and would prevent a student from moving to upper division or CODOing

 

For Spring 2020 only:

If a student takes an AI course for a grade and does not meet requirements or must retake the course (D+ or below) we will not count the course attempt in the total number of enrollments for the retake policy. So any attempt (P/NP or for grade) will not count as 1 of the attempts or as a final retake attempt.

Example- Fall 2019 student took MA 16010 and received a D, student is retaking in Spring 2020 and gets a D+ (they would still have one more attempt).

Example-Fall 2019 student took ECON 251 and received a C, decided to retake it in Spring 2020 and gets a C+ but does not meet the AI GPA, they can retake ECON 251 for the third time since the second does not count in total retake attempts.

Example-Student enrolls in COM 114 for the first attempt in Spring 2020 and gets a D. They have 2 more attempts at this course to meet AI requirements.

The AI must consist of at least (2) Krannert graded courses (for MAI/IMMAI-MGMT 20000 and ECON 25100 or for EAI-ECON 25100 and ECON 252) or (3) Purdue graded MAI/EAI courses. For Spring 2020 only, students would not be held to the 2 Krannert/3 Purdue graded requirement.

Example-Student is taking 4/5 AI courses and makes all of them P/NP in Spring 2020, they would only have 1 course remaining that must be taken for a grade to make up their AI GPA.

Example-Student transferred in 3 AI courses and only has 2 remaining that they are taking in Spring 2020. They can take those courses P/NP and if getting the P would meet the AI (would still need to meet all other requirements).
