Appeals & Probation, Changing Majors and
First Year Grade Exclusions

IF YOU HAVE BEEN DIRECTED TO THIS WEBSITE BE AWARE THAT YOU ONLY DO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING. MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE THE OPTION YOU HAVE BEEN DIRECTED TO USE.

Changing Majors to General Studies and in Good Academic Standing

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.

Acknowledgement of Probation for current General Studies majors with <2.0 cumulative GPA on TAMU classes 

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 Grade Exclusions.

Academic Appeals for GEST and non-GEST majors to continue in GEST

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.

Appeals and First Year Grade Exclusions

If you are eligible to utilize First Year Grade Exclusion, please be aware that 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.

 

WARNING: Completion of any appeal process does not guarantee approval.
