5. Change of Curriculum

(Revised: 2015)

 

5.1 Undergraduate students who have completed at least one term of full admission and enrollment at Texas A&M University may initiate a curriculum change during the semester no later than the last day of preregistration or deadline set by the receiving college or major, whichever is earliest. Curriculum changes may once again be initiated after final grades have posted. Curriculum changes, if approved, will become effective for the next academic term.

 

5.2 An undergraduate student in their first fall or spring term of full admission and enrollment at Texas A&M University may initiate a curriculum change before the end of 1) the fifth day of regular classes;  or 2) after mid-term grades have posted but before the last day of preregistration or deadline set by the receiving college or major, whichever is earliest. Curriculum changes may once again be initiated after final grades have posted. An undergraduate student in their first term of full admission and enrollment at Texas A&M University during a summer term may initiate a curriculum change after final grades have posted. Curriculum changes, if approved, will become effective for the next academic term.

 

5.3 Application for curriculum change shall be acted upon by the Dean or designee of the colleges concerned. At the time of the change, the Dean or designee of the college to which the transfer is being made shall determine if the application is being accepted or rejected. If accepted, the Dean or designee shall indicate conditions for acceptance, including terms of probation. The decision of the Dean or designee regarding acceptance or rejection of curriculum change applications is final.

 

5.4 For graduate and professional students, a curriculum change (i.e., a change from one major department to another) is accomplished via petition approved by the original department, the new department and the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies.
