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.
