Students must adhere to the university and college policy on double majors. All curriculum requirements in Engineering must be satisfied. The student must inform both departments/colleges by the start of the junior year; the student must submit a program for approval by the departments involved; the Dean must approve declaration of a double major; a declaration of a second major form must be submitted to the Office of Enrollment; students may not present less than 57 credits outside the two major fields in order to satisfy the minimum degree requirements of 120; students are awarded their degree in one college (they must choose one; otherwise, the degree will come from the college originally enrolled in).

Current UMass Lowell students should use their Advisement Report in SIS. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor.

Restriction on off-campus study:

Be advised that any course taken at another institution must be formally approved prior to enrollment. See the catalog policy for details.
