Starting the Application Process

Once you have met the admissions requirements listed above, click on the major link below to begin the change of major application process.

The Academic Affairs Office will notify you of the results via your official UA email address within seven to 10 work days.

If you have any questions about the application process please email engr-advising@email.arizona.edu. Include your name, student ID number and intended major.

If you would like to delete an existing Engineering major from your current academic program, please email engr-advising@email.arizona.edu using your UA Catmail account. Include your name and student ID number, and specifically state the Engineering degree you wish to delete. If you wish to delete a major outside of Engineering, please contact the major advisor for assistance.

Selecting Desired Major

NetID Login Required

*Important note: All students must have a UA cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 to be eligible to change degree programs or move into the College of Engineering. Strong grades in required math, science and engineering classes are good indicators of success in all of our degree programs. You can be denied even if you meet the GPA requirements for the chosen degree program if your math, science and engineering classes are not sufficiently strong.

You must be a continuing UA student to use this form. If you are a new, prospective or incoming transfer or freshman student, please visit our new student admission webpage for academic requirements. You must have completed at least 12 UA engineering degree required units to be considered for admission to an Engineering major. Grades of D or E, or repeated use of GRO’s in math/science/engineering classes will diminish your chances for admission.

Include only grades for classes taken at the University of Arizona. Do not include transfer courses.
