Purdue ends ‘redlining’ after Summer Session 2008

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Effective Aug. 28, Purdue will end the practice of redlining as outlined in Section VII — Grades and Grade Reports, Part J, of Academic Regulations and Procedures (, announced University Registrar Bob Kubat.

Redlining selectively eliminated bad grades from a student’s GPA when that student changed degree objectives.

Any Changes of Degree Objective (CODO) forms received by the Office of the Registrar after Aug. 22 will not be eligible for redlining, Kubat said. The current redlining policy language will be removed from Academic Regulations and Procedures and replaced by a new policy once it has been finalized.

“Our office will send out a announcement to the West Lafayette campus when the new policy has been posted,” he said.

Remaining fall CODOs will be processed after spring semester 2008 grades have been posted, and summer CODOs will be processed after the summer term grades have been turned in.

“All faculty and academic advisers need to be aware of this,” Kubat said.

Questions about redlining should be directed to Chris Dehahn in the Office of the Registrar at or (765) 494-6163.
