The CSE Admission to the Major database is now accepting applications for fall semester admission into the major.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday, May 25, but it is recommended that you apply to your selected major as soon as possible
Apply to your major!

The CSE Admission to the Major database is now accepting applications for spring semester admission into the major. If you are eligible, please apply immediately using the steps outlined by the CSE Office of Academic Advising.

To be eligible to apply this semester, you must have:
  • All required coursework successfully completed by the end of the spring 2021 semester
  • At least a 2.0 technical GPA
Courses required for admission to the major are indicated with a diamond on the Four-Year Plan. Please review the “Find out how to apply to your major” section on the Four-Year Plan for program-specific information.

The application to the major system recognizes only courses taken at the University of Minnesota, so please make sure any AP, IB, or transfer coursework that is required to apply to your major appears correctly on your APAS report. 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 can only accept your application if all of your courses are accounted for.

The deadline to apply to a major for fall semester admission is Tuesday, May 25, 2021.

It is recommended that you apply to your selected major as soon as possible so advisors can gain a better understanding of the demand for each program and advise students accordingly.

Admission to the major outcomes at the end of the spring semester are based on space availability, meaning there is no guaranteed technical GPA. While 2.0 is the minimum technical GPA to be considered for a major in the College of Science and Engineering, many of our majors have a higher technical GPA cutoff due to limited space.

As a reminder, your technical GPA comprises only 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 in. To learn more about which classes count toward your technical GPA, visit the  CSE Technical GPA Information website.

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 currently have an MDR hold on your record, please note that the hold will not be removed until you are admitted into a major.

Apply to your major.
