CODOing into the School of Civil Engineering

Attend a CODO Appointment

Students considering a CODO (change of degree objective, or change of curricula) into Civil Engineering MUST first sign up to meet individually with a CE advisor during a "CODO appointment" to discuss requirements and the details of their records.

Sign up for a CE CODO appointment (Julie Jesiek, CE Advisor). You will need to log in with your career account login.  If outside of Engineering please stop by the CE main office to schedule an appointment (HAMP1141)

To be eligible to CODO into Civil Engineering, a student must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • A minimum of 24 credits (all FYE courses must have a min. grade of C- ), required courses:
    1. Calculus I: (MA16100 or MA16500)
    2. Calculus II: (MA 16200 or MA 16600)
    3. Calculus-based Chemistry: (CHM 11500 or equivalent)
    4. Calculus-based Physics: (PHYS 17200)
  • The remaining credits to meet or exceed 24 credits may be comprised from the following options and must include at least one English Composition, Speech or CE general education elective course:
    1. Science Elective: Chemistry II (CHM 11600) or CS15900 (we prefer that CE students complete CHM11600 but will allow CS15900 as long as they are not pursuing the environmental area)
    2. English Composition (ENGL10600, ENGL10800, or transfer equivalent)
    3. Speech (COM 11400)
    4. CE general education elective
    5. Transforming Ideas to Innovations I: (ENGR 13100)
    6. Transforming Ideas to Innovations II: (ENGR 13200)
  • A student must have a cumulative GPA of 2.5. On a case by case basis we may allow a CODO GPA instead of a cumulative which would include all current grades for courses pertinent to the civil curriculum.
  • Student shall be in good academic standing (not on probation) at the time of CODO.
  • Availability of physical facilities and other resource limitations shall determine the number of students that may be accepted for transfer into the program at any given time. Students who apply for CODO and are denied because of space limitations may reapply.

Timing: CODO Deadlines

For CODOs to be effective for the current term, CODO papers must be processed in Weeks 1-2 of the current term.
All CODO papers signed in Weeks 3-16 will be effective for the following academic term. (Civil Engineering has the discretion to not authorize a CODO during Weeks 3-16 if it is determined that there is a need to wait for currently enrolled courses’ grades to post.)
