Data Science (Mathematics) Major Change (CODO) Requirements


Major Change (CODO) Requirements


Purdue students interested in changing their major should meet with their current academic advisor to discuss their options and begin the online process. Once the student’s Major Change (CODO) has been processed, students will receive an email with instructions to authorize the change.

Students will need to meet the criteria below to be eligible for this major. A student’s catalog term, typically the semester you started at Purdue, will be used to determine the Major Change criteria that applies to you. Students can find their catalog term at the top of their MyPurduePlan below the degree progress bar.

This major change information below is for the catalog term you are currently viewing; see the University Undergraduate Academic Advising Major Change (CODO) website for prior catalog term criteria, more about the major change process and FAQs.

General Requirements


  • Minimum Semesters:  1
  • Minimum West Lafayette Credit Hours:  12
  • Minimum GPA:  2.75

Other Requirements


  • Students are accepted for FALL, SPRING, and SUMMER
  • Students are admitted on a SPACE AVAILABLE BASIS ONLY after a holistic review. Space is limited.
  • Students must be in good academic standing (not on academic probation)
  • All CS and Math courses considered for CODO must be taken for a letter grade on a Purdue campus.
  • Equivalent 10000 and 20000-level Computer Science (CS) transfer credit courses (including credit from regional campuses) may be used to meet degree requirements if those courses were taken prior to admission to the Purdue West Lafayette Data Science, B.S. Mathematics program.
  • Equivalent 10000 and 20000-level Mathematics (MA) transfer credit courses and MA 35100 transfer credit with a “C” or better (including credit from regional campuses) may be used to meet degree requirements if those courses were taken prior to admission to the Purdue West Lafayette Data Science, B.S. Mathematics program.
  • CS and MA transfer credit at the 30000-40000-level may not be used to meet degree requirements. An exception to this policy is the application of pre-approved Study Abroad coursework.
  • For CODO purposes, only the first or second attempt of a required CS and Math course will be considered. Course withdrawals are included in this requirement.
  • Note: Data Science (Mathematics) was a new major for fall 2021. Courses are in development and will roll out as students progress. Earliest completion date in the program is spring 2025 due to the development of new courses.
