Be Advised: All submitted changes are subject to approval.

  • Cal Poly does not use the area for Additional Non A-G courses in our selection process.

  • Cal Poly does not update grades earned in the fall or spring semester of your senior year or year of transfer
  • Cal Poly does not update/correct your self-reported GPA. We will use the coursework and grades entered on the application to calculate an overall GPA for each applicant.
  • Test scores received after submitting the application should be sent to Cal Poly electronically by the testing agency
  • Cal Poly does not update coursework for Freshman applicants once your application has been submitted. Transfer applicants may only make changes to courses for the Spring term directly preceding the intended Fall enrollment term.

Major Changes

  • Please refer to the Selection Criteria on the Admissions website to ensure you have courses required and desired for the new major.
  • Cal Poly is impacted in all majors and rarely considers an alternate major.
