Department uses change of major policy for reinstatement
Both requirements stated in the policy should be met and students will be ranked based
on the provided formula (using mainly STEM GPA).
Enrolling in a major class as an Open University (OU) student without a study plan
does not mean that student has been reinstated in the major and the department is
under no obligation to reinstate that student even if a significant progress has being
made toward a degree.
