Taking different courses

Postby friddel21 » Fri, 16 Jan 2015 11:21:46 -0500

Hello I am new in forum and I am from Germany

I am currently in the States and I have been admitted(freshman) and my major is international relation. So I want to change my major to mechanical engineering but it's not possible, I have to wait a semester long, because they will review my application for applying for mechanical engineering.

So someone told me I could take courses that are required for mechanical egineering they would still consider me majoring intern. relations but after a semester when they reviewed my application and see my grades are good enough for mechanical engineering they would change major.

Please can someone enlighten me, is this true could I make 30 credits as a freshman, if I am taking different courses would it be still 4 years?
