STAR Switches  

Current as of June 14, 2013

During STAR, some admitted students will request to switch colleges and if they mention it at check-in, Admissions will assist them immediately. However, some may ask college representatives later in the day and this web page is provided as a reference to help you guide students who request to switch.

To be considered for a switch, students must complete a switch form and be re-evaluated by an Admissions Committee member. If a student asks you about switching, please refer to the table below before sending him/her to Admissions. The table includes a current list of closed programs and programs with minimum academic criteria. Please do not refer a student to Admissions if they don't meet the minimum criteria for the program they want or that program is closed.

Students who have earned a Trustees or Presidential scholarship WILL LOSE THEIR SCHOLARSHIP if they switch out of the college to which they were admitted.

If a student's requested major is available and they meet any posted minimum criteria for switching, you may refer him/her to the Office of Admissions in Schleman Hall to complete the necessary form. The switch request will be processed that day. If you do not have access to academic information, please have the student call Admissions, 494-1776, before sending him/her to Schleman Hall.

Students who were not admitted to their first-choice major for academic reasons will not be switched into that program. Transfer students should refer to the closed programs web page to determine whether a program they want is accepting transfer students. If their desired program is not closed, transfer students should visit the Admissions office to request a switch.
