Last year, my daughter applied and got accepted into TAMU via their PSA admittance program for a major in the college of agriculture that the system schools did not offer. Since she was required to choose a major anyway, we studied the prerequisite basics so that when she met the requirements to choose a major (within the same college as the one offering her intended major) they did offer at the system school she chose, she’d still be taking the classes needed to go back to the original major she’d chosen TAMU to get. Yet, even though TAMU knew of and accepted her for her intended major, they made her register for classes this fall that are for the declared major she was required to declare for the system school she attended per PSA, but aren’t needed for her ultimate degree. So frustrating! It doesn’t make sense. And since transfer students apparently registered last, no in-person classes were left! A new campus and no classes to go to campus to attend. They emailed later and said they want everyone to get at least one in person class, but by then she’d resigned herself into staying home to keep her job to make money for future semesters. She’s actually beginning to consider dropping the courses the counselor told her she has to take for her “2nd choice” major to instead take classes she does need at a community college at the same time that she takes a couple of TAMU classes online. ANY WISDOM OR ADVICE FROM OTHER PSA FAMILIES? We don’t understand how it is that we’re following TAMU guidelines and yet seem to have them working against us. Why does it seem she’s going to have to beg and be at the mercy of maybe and maybe not being allowed to go for her intended major, when it’s what TAMU accepted her under to begin with?
Is there a chance someone can help her get into the right classes, even when her counselor didn’t?
Thanks in advance for any guidance, insight and advice.
