The CSE Admission to the Major database is now accepting applications for spring semester admission into the major. Most CSE students apply while enrolled in sophomore-level courses. In order to be eligible to apply this semester, you must have all of the required courses for your chosen major completed by the end of the semester. The deadline to apply is Thursday, Dec. 30.
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 fall 2021 semester
  • At least a 2.0 technical GPA
The required courses to apply to a given major are noted in the lower left-hand corner of your four-year-plan.

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 required coursework and 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 Thursday, Dec. 30, 2021.

It is recommend 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.

If you have completed the necessary technical course work for your intended major and have a 3.2 or higher 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 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 that resulted in a letter grade of A-F are factored in. To learn more about which classes count toward your technical GPA, visit the advising website.

If you have any concerns about your ability to be admitted to your chosen major, please speak with your advisor about your options. It is recommended that all students have an alternate (parallel) plan in place.

Apply to your major.
