Changing Your Major or Minor

CST Students

In order to add or change majors or minors within the College of Science and Technology, a CST student must meet with an advisor in the CST's Office of Student Services. The advisor will evaluate the student's record in accordance with the following policy:

1. CST students in their first semester at Temple University who wish to add or change majors or minors within the CST will be automatically approved, provided they are taking, have satisfied or placed higher than a GenEd level or higher Mathematics course.

2. Continuing CST students who wish to add or change declared majors or minors within the CST must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or higher. Continuing CST students who wish to change their major to undeclared will be automatically approved, provided that the total of completed and registered credits is fewer than 60 credits.

To transfer into the College of Science and Technology (CST), a non-CST student must complete the online Change of Program (COP) session via Blackboard. Prior to being added to the Blackboard program, students must be in accordance with the following policy:
