During the first week of January 2012 non-General Studies (GEST) majors who hope
to change to General Studies and who are in good academic standing may complete
an on-line Change of Curriculum Request. Be aware that we can no longer
admit changes of majors to the GEST major who have greater than 45 passed hours.
To gain access to the form, students must contact a TAP advisor either by phone
or e-mail to confirm their good standing and hours. The advisor will then direct
the student to the on-line form.
Deadline to submit Probation Form: January 31, 2012
Some current GEST majors were sent a letter that informed them they were on academic
probation. They must complete an Online Acknowledgement
of Probation Form. All students who were sent the e-mail or letter must
submit a form, regardless of the ability to change their status through First Year
Appeal Deadline: January 12, 5:00 p.m.
All non-General Studies (GEST) majors whose TAMU GPA is less than 2.00 must submit
an Appeal for Continued Enrollment to request continuation of their TAMU studies
as a GEST major.
Some GEST majors with larger grade point deficiencies have been informed by e-mail
and hard-copy letters that they must submit an Appeal for Continued Enrollment to
request permission to continue their TAMU studies as a GEST major.

the Appeals Committee will take that into consideration when making the appeals
decision. You may complete the FYGE process with your current major or choose to
process it later if your appeal is approved.
