Major Change Request

Major Change Request

If you have 55 or fewer credits you may use this form to request a major change into any engineering major.  

If you are seeking a major change to something other than Collegeof Engineering majors, please visit the website of that college to learn more about the process.  If you wish to change your major to Exploratory Preference, or if you wish to discuss major options, please visit a Neighborhood Engagement Center for guidance.

This request does NOT ensure admission to engineering.  Please see https://www.egr.msu.edu/undergraduate/academic/admission-engineering for information on that process.

Students with a major in James Madison, Lyman Briggs or the Residential College in the Arts and Humanities must complete an exit interview/survey with their college prior to submitting a major change request.
