Want to CODO?

Informational Meetings

Any current Purdue student wanting information about the College of Education's three majors (elementary education, social studies education, and special education) or interested in changing his/her degree objective (CODOing), must sign up to attend one of the informational meetings listed below. Sign up sheets are in the Office of Advising & Recruiting in Beering Hall of Liberal Arts and Education, room 3216.

The CODO Information Meeting you attend is considered your first appointment with an academic advisor. After this initial meeting, you will be able to make individual appointments with an advisor and attend walk-in hours. Please bring an academic transcript to the meeting.

Informational meetings are held periodically throughout the fall and spring semesters. If you are not able to attend one of the meetings listed below for this semester, you may make an individual appointment with an academic advisor after May 1, 2014, or attend a meeting during the next semester. Individual meetings are also scheduled on dates when classes are not in session. Next semester meeting dates will be posted at a later date.
