College of Engineering Policies

Change of Program

Students who wish to change their declarations of program within the College of Engineering are required to follow the procedure stipulated under University Academic Policies: Change of Major within College of Enrollment. It should be noted that College of Engineering students who change their programs within the College of Engineering after the first semester of the sophomore year should expect to have to take semester credits beyond the minimum degree requirement, and thus extend the normal four-year period of study.

Students who wish to change from engineering to a major that is offered by another college within the University of Massachusetts Lowell must apply for an intercollegiate transfer. These procedures are described under University Academic Policies: Change of Major with Intercollegiate Transfer.

Qualified students from other colleges in the University of Massachusetts Lowell may transfer into degree programs of the College of Engineering using the same procedure. However, these students may expect to extend their period of study beyond the normal four-year period, particularly if they transfer after the first semester of the sophomore year.
