SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE - MAJOR CHANGE PROCEDURE

The School of Architecture offers Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design degrees.

Current UT Arlington students who are interested in changing into either of those majors should:

  1. Email our office at arch.advising@uta.edu to express interest and get access to the CAPPA Major Change Module in Blackboard.
  2. Complete major change requirements 1-4 (see Major change options/requirements below)
  3. Email our office at arch.advising@uta.edu after your current semester grades have posted to arrange an appointment with one of our advisors. Given all requirements are met at that time.

The final decision will be based on the completion of the above requirements, space availability, and Department discretion.

Permission for major required courses will not be given to non-majors before our current majors have been seated.

NO MAJOR CHANGES WILL OCCUR IN THE MIDDLE OF AN ACTIVE SEMESTER.

Note: Due to our course sequencing (Cohort) the undergraduate program takes a minimum of 8 semesters (4 years) to complete for all students.
