Admitted Freshman students may request a¬†change of major via the Howdy Portal,¬†howdy.tamu.edu¬†up to 3 days prior to their NSC. Select the Applicant¬†Tab and ‚ÄėManage Applications.‚Äô The last time you will be able to request a change of major is during Check-In on Day 1 of your NSC Date; provided that major is participating in your currently scheduled NSC.
Some¬†majors have enrollment limits and may¬†not accept a change of major, such as¬†the College of Architecture (all majors);¬†College of Engineering (all majors); Mays¬†Business School (all majors); Biomedical Sciences in the College of Veterinary¬†Medicine; Biology, Molecular and Cell Biology, Microbiology, and Zoology within the College of Science; Psychology, Communications and Journalism Studies-¬†University Studies in the College of¬†Liberal Arts; and Public Health in the¬†College of Public Health.
Please be aware that a change of major¬†is never guaranteed. A change of major¬†may mean a change in your NSC date;¬†therefore, verify that your new college¬†is participating in the NSC in which you¬†are currently registered. If not, you must¬†reschedule your conference.

Transfer students are reviewed for and admitted to a specific degree granting program. Changes of major will not be considered for at least one full semester. Many departments and colleges have grade point requirements, and Texas A&M residency requirements and restrictions for changes of major. For change of curriculum requirements see https://tap.tamu.edu/main/changofmajor.pdf.
Your course registration at your New Student Conference will be limited to the degree program to which you have been admitted. For more information, please contact your specific academic college.
