If you missed the deadline to apply as a new COMS major for Spring, 2014, you will have to wait until the next open period. Please fill out a “Notification to Receive an Application” form if you would like to be on the waitlist for the next application period.
Our Application process is generally in early March and early October of each year. We can’t guarantee that we will have an application process every semester.

Students with 4 or more points will be given priority. Students with 3 points will be admitted as space allows.
