Application to the major database now open

The major application database is now available. The deadline to apply to a major during the Fall 2014 semester is Tuesday, December 30.
The major application database is now available. If you are a pre-major student who is eligible to apply to your major this semester, you are required to attend a Group Registration workshop. If you are a freshman who is also prepared to apply to your major, you can discuss this option during your one-on-one advising appointment.

To be eligible to apply this semester, you must have all mandatory required coursework to apply completed by the end of the Fall 2014 semester, and you must have at least a 2.0 technical GPA. The required courses to apply to a given major are double boxed on your four-year-plan. Courses that are outlined in dashes indicate that you only need to have one of the two courses to apply.

The application to the major system only recognizes courses taken at the U of M, so please make sure any AP coursework or transfer coursework that is required to apply to your major is showing up on your APAS report. If you have completed classes outside of the U of M, advisors will need to manually confirm that you have all of the mandatory coursework, and we can only accept your application if all of your courses are accounted for.

The deadline to apply to a major during the Fall 2014 semester is Tuesday, December 30. We recommend that you apply to your selected major as soon as possible to help us determine demand for each major and advise students accordingly.

If you have a 3.2 Technical GPA following the fall semester, and the required coursework for your intended major, you will be guaranteed admission to your major. The remaining seats are filled on a space available basis based on technical GPAs. While a 2.0 is the minimum to apply to a major in the College of Science and Engineering, many of our majors cut off higher than that due to space constraints.

Your Technical GPA is comprised only of courses taken at the U of M Twin-Cities campus. All attempts (which resulted in a letter grade of A-F) are factored into the GPA. To learn more about which classes count towards your Technical GPA click here.

If you have any concerns about your ability to be admitted to your chosen major, please speak with your advisor about your options. If you are not admitted to your first choice major and already have an alternate plan in place, your transition to the spring semester will go much more smoothly.
