The process to change your major to the Bachelor of Science in Information Science at College Park (InfoSci) is for current University of Maryland undergraduate students only. This process is not instantaneous and should be done in advance of Registration to prevent delays in scheduling.
The InfoSci Change of Major steps are as follows:
- Students will register for an Information Session using the widget below at least two days before the session. All internal transfers are required to attend an InfoSci Information Session.
- A day before the Information Session, WebEx access directions and information will be provided via email.
- Students who attend the InfoSci Information Session will be given access to the Change of Major ELMS space.
- The final step of the InfoSci Change of Major process is the submission of major change forms, namely a one-year course plan/Registration Projection to the ELMS. This will be submitted electronically for review and feedback via comments in ELMS by an InfoSci advisor.
Each submission or resubmission may take up to ten days to process, longer at the end of the semester as our queue is flooded. Upon successful completion, the student will have their major changed to InfoSci.
Students will complete a traditional academic/4 year/graduation plan during mandatory advising in their first semester in the InfoSci major.
