美国转专业达到50%以上,真的很容易转么?

 

我们经常遇到学生和家长问,我们先申请进入目标大学,然后再转专业,可行么?

不管是在已经拿到录取的学生,还是提前准备规划,正在申请的学生,经常会遇到这样的问题。

 

转专业当然是OK的,美国大学之间互相认可学分,所以,学校与学校之间转学,转专门都是极其方便的,更别说在大学内部,跨学院之间的转专业了。

 

我们有学生,从迈阿密大学转学到密西根安娜堡大学,有成功转学康奈尔大学的,也有成功转学录取加州伯克利,洛杉矶,圣巴巴拉,圣地亚哥分校的。

 

转学和转专业的主要因素在于三个方面:1.GPA  2. 所选课程 3. 你在读的专业跟申请的专业的关联度以及你即将申请的学院和专业的竞争程度。

 

我们这次就专门来谈谈大学内部转学:

 

学生A:未确定专业,理工女,对计算机科学感兴趣和热情,将来非常大可能和意愿都计算机,录取的学校转专业分析如下:

Computer Science and Engineering Undergraduate Program

The Computer Science and Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET; see http://www.abet.org.

Exclusive of General Education units, the minimum number of units for the Computer Science and Engineering major is 142.

Students are encouraged to adhere carefully to all prerequisite requirements. The instructor is authorized to drop students from a course for which stated prerequisites have not been completed.

Change of Major

The requirements to change majors into the Computer Science (CS) major in the College of Letters and Science changed in Spring Quarter 2015. With the declaration of CS as an impacted major, new prerequisites to transferring into the major will be enforced.

Students that are considering switching to CS must have a 3.0 GPA at the time the petition is submitted. Additionally, students must have completed all of MAT 21AB, ECS 20, ECS 30, and ECS 40 with a C- or better. University requirements state that all students considering switching their major must have completed at least one quarter at UC Davis, as well as be in good academic standing.

Students must then make an appointment with one of the major advisers using the Advising Appointment System to make a course plan.

 Changing from a Major in another school to ICS

·         Visit the UCI Change of Major Criteria websitefor a listing of specific change of major guidelines for your intended major.

·         Meet with an ICS academic counselor or peer advisor as soon as possible to determine whether you are eligible to switch majors and to map out an academic plan.

·         Once you have met the Bren School of ICS change of major requirements:

·         Submit the Change of Major Application online

·         If you have over 120 units, an academic plan with intended graduate quarter and year must also be submitted.

 

 Undeclared Students

What does Impacted/Capped Major status mean?

 

Effective Fall 2015, all four CSE majors are capped/impacted.  Impacted/Capped Major means there is a cap on the number of students admitted to the major.  Incoming freshmen, transfers, and continuing students who were not admitted directly into an impacted major will need to apply to change into that major.  Please see our Capped Major webpage for more details.  

 

U of Washington:

Is there a minimum GPA for an application to be considered?

There is no minimum GPA to apply, and there is no automatic admission or denial based on GPA. Everyone who has met the application requirements will be considered.  However, admission is competitive, and admitted students have strong grades.  In general, competitive applicants typically have grades of 3.5 and higher in related math, science, CSE, and English courses, with strong grades overall -- but there is no exact formula determining what grades will be competitive. Speak to a CSE advisor if you have concerns or questions about your grades.

How many undergraduates do you admit to the major?

Currently, around 300 students per year are accepted into the CSE department. This includes both Computer Science and Computer Engineering.  The CSE Admissions Committee reviews all applications together, so both majors are equally competitive. Approximately 30 percent of all applicants are accepted.  Because the department has multiple application cycles, many people apply more than once, and applicant numbers vary each quarter.  Although CSE tends to have more applicants in the autumn, the standards of admission are roughly the same for both the autumn and spring quarters.

可以看出,UCSD转读CS是非常热门,竞争激烈的,录取率21%GPA3.9以上,根据在读的学生反馈,学校今年采取抽签的形式,应为能满足录取条件的学生实在比较多。华大西雅图也有不少学生吐槽,真心要选的学校最好的专业,要非常的努力。CS的转专业录取率为大约不到30%。UCI和UCD难度则相对降低,GPA在3.0-3.5以上都有机会进入。

 

 

学生B,家里是有金融,投行背景,希望进入NYU Stern商学院,从目前状况来讲,学生本身的条件估计直接申请Stern 商学院竞争过于积累,可能因此而失去进去的机会,从外部大学转学到NYU的录取率不到4%,甚至更低。在内部大约每年约有50-60名左右的学生能够转进去Stern,当然内部也不是一般的激烈残酷。比如我选择读文理学院的经济,先进入NYU,哪之后怎么转学到Stern呢?

 

纽约大学有两个经济学系,都叫做Department of Economics,分别开设了不同的学院,一个开设在商学院Leonard N. Stern School of Business,一个开设在文理学院School of Arts and Science.虽然开设在不同学院,但是两者之间共享很多学术资源,并且许多课程和师资都是交叉共有的。

商学院

两个经济系里面的课程,课程是非常类似的。所以学生要是在 School of Arts and Science,转去 Stern School 的课程大部分都是被接受的。

 

学生C,不确定专业进入UIUCGPA3.5左右,本来目标进入学校的机械工程专业,后来发现竞争太积累,要求几乎都是3.94.0以上的学霸,转而求其次,学习EE电子工程,基本3.5以上的GPA就可以转专业录取。

 

综上所述,对于已经非常目前自己的优势,对专业有形成一定的深入学习,有将来明确职业规划的孩子,最好对于不确定专业和转专业要做非常足够的功课。 当然,对于专业基本放在研究生阶段学习的范畴外的专业,不在此考虑范围内,比如城市规划,比如MBA,本科阶段读各种专业的都有。 对于尚未形成自己专业兴趣爱好,或者专业兴趣爱好比较广泛的孩子,就不太需要考虑专业了,在大学阶段尽管综合浪漫的探索,等到申请研究生的时候再确定。
