Changing to the AGCJ Major

Students interested in the AGCJ major are encouraged to meet with an AGCJ academic advisor. Appointments may be made using the online system at https://alec.tamu.edu/academics/advising. During registration, pre-registration, and the first 2 weeks of the semester, advisors will not meet with students who are not currently in the AGCJ major and changes of major will not be considered during that time.
