Change of Major

Our next meeting is Wednesday April 29, 2015, at 12:00 pm - 12:50 pm in building 164, room 2033.

All students who have entered the university as an undeclared major or who wish to change from another degree program or emphasis (in the case of CBA students) to finance, real estate and law are required to attend a change of major meeting with the department chair and submit a Petition to Change Major Curriculum Form.

Our department has a few policies to be aware of before switching:
1) your Cal Poly GPA must be at least 2.20 or higher
2) if you are at Junior or Senior status, you must have passed MAT 125 (or equivalent/higher) with a C or better
3) you must not have ANY academic holds on your account
4) you need to attend a mandatory FRL change of major meeting

If you have any concerns regarding our policies, feel free to contact us regarding your situation.
To have your name added to our contact list for the next meeting, please email Ana Austin at

Permission numbers

Permission numbers are only given to students who come to the department office. Permission numbers will not be administered over the phone.

Only one permission number may be given to a student at a time. Please know the number or section number before coming in to the department office.

If you do not meet the prerequisites for the class, you will not be given a permission number.

If you are in concurrent enrollment with two or more universities/colleges, you must have completed the appropriate course and received the appropriate grade, and you must bring in proof to the department office, before receiving a permission number.

You MUST bring proof of ALL of the prerequisites required for the course, even if they were taken at Cal Poly. An unofficial transcript is sufficient.

A permission number will not put you into the class if the class is full, it will only add you to the waiting list.
