Current Students Interested in Public Affairs?
Current UTK students who want to switch their major to public affairs or add a double major are required to attend an academic advising appointment with the Baker School. Students seeking an internal transfer must have a cumulative UTK GPA of 2.5 or higher. Students planning to graduate before Spring 2027 are not eligible to major in public affairs, but are encouraged to consider minors in public affairs, public policy analytics, or civics.
Please plan on attending your regularly scheduled advising appointment in addition to the Baker School advising to prevent a delay in registration.
The internal transfer advising appointments will answer all your questions and will be tailored to your individual circumstances. Please bring all your advising questions to the appointment. If you have questions related to your appointment, please email BakerStudents@utk.edu.
