Apply to your major!
The Admission to the Major database is now available for spring 2017 admission into a major.
To be eligible to apply this semester:
- You must have all required coursework successfully completed by the end of the fall 2016 semester.
- You must have at least a 2.0 technical GPA.
If you have completed classes outside of the University of Minnesota, 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 for spring semester admission is Dec. 30, 2016.
We recommend that you apply to your selected major as soon as possible so we can gain a better understanding of the demand for each program and advise students accordingly.
If you have completed the necessary technical course work for your intended major and have a 3.2 Technical GPA at the end of fall semester, you will be guaranteed admission into your major. If your technical GPA is below 3.2, you will be considered for admission on a space-available basis. While a 2.0 is the minimum Technical GPA to be considered for a major in the College of Science and Engineering, many of our majors do have a cutoff at a higher technical GPA due to limited space.
As a reminder, your Technical GPA is comprised only of courses taken at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus. The Technical GPA is unbracketed meaning that all attempts at a course (which resulted in a letter grade of A-F) are factored into it.

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.
Apply to your major.
