    time to an impacted major only if you don t take more than 12 units while re applying I have 110 units and just discovered that I love chemistry I am an English major What do I do now If you are over 90 units you will not be allowed to change your major except under special circumstances We will look at the difference in number of units to completion between your newly requested major and your old major We will also look at your academic record in both requested and current majors The general rule however is that the more units you have already completed and the more units required to complete the requested major the less likely you will be able to change your major If you have only completed a course or two in Chemistry by the time you have earned 110 units chances are that you will not have the new major approved I have been working toward a double major in business management and creative writing I only declared the creative writing major though I already have 125 units Can I still declare the business management major All Business majors are impacted You will need to apply to business management described in 4 above by November 1 If you are accepted and if you have been taking the business courses all along as you describe then chances are that your double major will be approved I have over 120 units and would like to graduate in Mechanical Engineering I have failed one of the required courses twice so have been unable to graduate What do I do now Can I change my major Our goal is to allow you to graduate in your chosen major if at all possible See your advisor and discuss alternatives such as substitutions or alternative means for demonstrating competency If there are none in that major visit the Engineering Student Success Center to explore changing to another of the Engineering major If no alternatives exist visit AARS An advisor there will discuss alternatives and potential referrals which might include a new major or a special major Since applicants have different options for declaring majors depending on where they live do I have to pay any attention to local non local No since you are already here on campus you can change to any major without concerning yourself with your local non local status at the time you applied and were admitted to SJSU You do however have to meet all of the other requirements for any impacted major See the SJSU Impaction Information website for details of those requirements High Unit Seniors I have 125 units and have reacently decided to go to graduate school I have almost completed my major but to get into grad school I need minimally another 15 units but optimally another major What can I do We will work with you to finish your major in a timely fashion If you can do so during the next semester you will be required to do so If you can take one or two courses to complement your major while doing so you will be allowed to add those courses Your degree will be conferred at the end of that semester I have 135 units Will I have a hold on my registration and if so what do I do Yes you will have a hold on your registration You will be required to visit your major and minor if necessary advisor to review your remaining requirements to graduate Together you will complete a requirements form Your advisor will attach your major form to it give you a copy and keep a copy This form is your flight plan or exit strategy as we guide you toward graduation The courses as listed are the only courses you will be permitted to take along with any approved alternatives The form also lists any additional requirements necessary for you to graduate e g completing GE courses passing the WST maintaining a 2 0 GPA As long as you follow the requirements you will have a hold on your registration and a required visit to your advisor every semester until you graduate What if I can t get into one of the courses on my form so instead decide to take an interesting course that might help me be more employable and will allow me to reach 12 units If you can t get into a course on your requirements sheet and there are no other available courses listed on your form 1 bring your form to your department chair He she might be able to help you get in one of the courses 2 visit AARS advisors who will attempt to help you find a substitute and or 3 visit your major minor advisor to get permission to alter your form Depending on your circumstances you may be allowed to add the extra course However if you take that course without permission you will be in violation of your requirements and will be placed on contract for the following semester What if I can t get into the one course I need to graduate You must first go to your department chair to see if you may be added to the course If that route is unsuccessful visit an AARS advisor who will work with you to find an alternative What does it mean to be placed on contract All students with greater than 150 units and those between 120 and 149 units who violate the terms of their requirements will be placed on contract The elements of the requirements and the contract are the same each specifies the courses and requirements that you will be allowed to complete The differences are 1 those students on contract have a restrictive hold meaning that they must visit AARS after visiting their advisor in order to register only AARS advisors will be able to register them 2 students will not be
