Definition and Policy

The University admits first-semester baccalaureate degree candidates to a campus that can provide at least 2 semesters of normal progress toward the program they have selected. Generally, students are expected to complete 2 full years of academic work at their initial campus. After 2 years, they may have to change to a University campus that offers the upper-level course work required in their major.

College Policy: A student may request an early change of campus in order to maintain normal progress toward his/her preferred major. Change of campus to University Park should generally take place after the student has completed 4 full-time semesters (or equivalent) at another campus. There are two ways under which students can relocate to University Park prior to completing 4 semesters: 1) if a student is unable to make normal progress toward the degree because the requisite courses are not available at the student’s campus. In this case requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis, and 2) if the Vice-Provost for Undergraduate Education has approved a policy exception for a given program. In all other circumstances, students should not be advised that the College will recommend relocation to University Park prior to completion of the fourth semester.
