Switching into CNR vs. Telebears
Time passes by very quickly and it doesn't feel like Spring Telebear appointments are coming up shortly. If you are new to the University or if you are wondering switching colleges or majors, here are some tips for you!
How to switch into CNR?
If you are a freshman, you are allow to switch colleges only after you complete your first semester at CAL. You need to pick up a petition form from 260 Mulford, fill it out, and turn it in to the office.
Make sure that you have talked to the major advisor of your intended major and be aware of what are the courses you need to register for the upcoming semester. Some required classes filled up really quickly, so make sure you know what are the courses you would like to enroll first during Telebear Phase I.
If you already transferred into CNR, make sure that you meet wity your faculty advisor with your Telebear form and check your email regularly. Your major advisor will send you an email for you to sign up an appointment for advisor code, except NST and MT majors.
If you are still switching colleges or majors during the first couple weeks of the new semester, and you might be required to register courses for your previous major, pay attention to the maximum and minimum unit caps of different colleges. Also be aware of the following late fee:
-A Late Registration Fee of $150 is charged to all students who are not officially registered by Friday of the third week of instruction.
-An Add Fee of $5 per course is charged to students who add classes after the third week of instruction.
-A Drop Fee of $10 per course is charged to undergraduates who drop classes after the second week of instruction, and charged to graduate students who drop courses after the third week of instruction.
If you have not decide which major you would like to declare, it is recommended for you to take some lower division seminar courses offered by different majors so you can have a general idea about that major such as what you will be studying for that major, what are the future career paths, and research opportunities within that major.
Also, feel free to talk to the Peer Advising Leader for that major to get to know different classes and student life or academic advices. If you cannot make it to the office hour, don't hesitate to send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as early as we can.
