Change of Campus

Change of Campus Policy

Texas A&M University developed a university-wide policy that enables students to move more freely among majors and campuses within the Texas A&M University flagship system (Texas A&M University, Texas A&M University at Galveston, Texas A&M University at Qatar).  Students should make informed decisions regarding their academic interests and their professional goals and objectives before submitting a change of campus request. Texas A&M’s information page contains college and major specific requirements for changing your major/campus and is updated by each college and department on an annual basis.

Texas A&M University at Qatar students are encouraged to speak with their academic advisor prior to submitting a change of campus request. Texas A&M University tuition and fees can vary depending on a student's classification, residency status, and major. It is important to make an informed decision prior to requesting a change of campus.

Sponsored students may not be eligible for a change of campus.

If you plan to change campuses, you must make a request to the academic college, department, or major you want to transfer into by submitting a change of major request form through your Howdy portal. Departments have different policies and requirements (i.e. maximum amount of hours, GPA requirements or course requirements) needing to be completed before accepting applicants. It is essential to review the requirements before submitting a change of campus request.

Application Deadlines

Eligible students will be allowed to initiate a change of campus request starting ten business days after final grades post. The curriculum change will be effective for the next academic term (per Texas A&M University Student Rule 5 Change of Curriculum).

TAMUQ is not responsible for entry into the United States. If a change of campus is approved it is the responsibility of the student to obtain the appropriate visa and/or documents for entry. These deadlines vary and are not the same as the application deadlines.

Students NOT holding a US passport should contact International Student Services prior to requesting a change of campus. 


Information is updated annually or as notified. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to verify all academic requirements with the department’s website or advisor. Students are responsible for meeting the terms of the major specific requirements for admission.

It is the student’s responsibility to adhere to posted deadlines for Texas A&M University and International Student Services.
