Current Students — Petition to Change Major

See Change of Major Request Form

Deadlines for submitting a request to change your major are as follows:

  • Summer: April 1
  • Fall: July 1
  • Spring: November 1

Our office will review requests at the end of the semester.  If your petition was filed on or before the deadline, you can expect a response sent to your UH email within 2-3 weeks after your most recent grades have posted.  Requests received in the Engineering Undergraduate Program’s office will be reviewed with 1 of 4 following outcomes:  

  1. Approved
    Requirements met for engineering.
  2. Hold for grades
    A decision could not be made for the term you filed your request.  Our office will now hold your petition for another term while you complete recommended course(s). 
  3. Application is premature — Disapproved
    You have not completed required coursework needed for engineering. Re-file your request once the required coursework has been completed.
  4. Disapproved
    You did not meet requirements for engineering. (If you have any questions or concerns, please contact an academic advisor in the Undergraduate Programs' office).

Please review our criteria for a major change before submitting your request.

Also, please visit and read our College of Engineering rules for more academic information on advising, C-rule and maximum number of attempts allowed.
