New Students/Change of Major
Welcome to the College of Computing & Informatics (CCI)! This section contains imperative information about computing skills and University resources that will help you succeed here. We expect you to become familiar with these resources and refer back to them when necessary.
Change of Major:
University policy states that students must have a least a 2.0 cumulative GPA in order to change their major. CCI follows this policy as well, however, if you have less then a 2.0 and are still interested in changing your major, schedule a meeting with an undergraduate advisor. It may be possible for you to work on CCI courses while raising your GPA to the minimum requirement.
If you are considering changing your major, please contact an undergraduate advisor to schedule an appointment. During the appointment, we will be able to discuss, on a personal level, where all of your previous and current courses fit into our curriculum.
Special Internal Transfer Policy:
Additionally, CCI has a special internal transfer policy that allows second term students to change their major, even if they are not in good standing. An individualized transcript review will be performed to determine if the student's overall academic performance would support a transfer into a particular major.
Please note: The student's academic and judicial file will also be reviewed in this process. CCI may deny transfer if there is any indication that the transfer would not serve the interests of the College or student.
