General Terms and Conditions of Participation:
- Participation. Only students selected by Texas A&M University will be allowed to participate in the Opportunity Majors Program.
- Intended Major. Transfer students will be assigned a major from the Opportunity Majors List* by the Admissions Review Committee based on coursework completed and original majors chosen.
- Changing Major. Students admitted to an Opportunity Major may switch to any other Opportunity Major* upon approval from an advisor. If a major is available at the time of admission based on the catalog but has subsequently been removed from the Opportunity Major list, a student may still be granted a change into that major. Students who complete 40 hours of course credit at Texas A&M with a 3.75 GPA or higher will be allowed to change to a non-Opportunity Major upon approval by an advisor.
- Previously Earned Credit. Any college level credits accepted by Texas A&M that were earned by a student prior to enrolling at Texas A&M shall not apply toward the 40 hours that would allow a student to pursue a non-Opportunity Major.
- Academic Advising. An Opportunity Major student will receive academic advising from the advisors assigned to their current major.
- Student Rules. An Opportunity Major student is expected to be knowledgeable about the Texas A&M Student Rules and shall agree to comply with said rules.
- Readmission. If a student voluntarily drops out of Texas A&M University, the student may pursue future readmission to Texas A&M subject to the then current readmission criteria.
By accepting admission to an Opportunity Major as noted in the letter of admission, students are acknowledging their understanding of the Terms and Conditions of participation in the Opportunity Majors Program and consent to the terms outlined above. Students also acknowledge that this is not a contractual agreement; it is merely an acknowledgement that admission to the university will be governed by these terms.
