College is a time for students to explore their interests. During that exploration, students may find they want to change their major in order to pursue different professions.
Volunteering with organizations related to their field of interest, talking with professors, participating in job shadowing programs and utilizing career assessments are great ways to explore their options.
Undergraduate students wishing to change majors should complete a change of major request form before the start of the semester with the academic advisor of the program they want to join. Students must be in good academic standing to change majors/degree programs. In the first semester of the new program, students must meet with an academic advisor to prepare a degree plan. Students with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 may only change their major with permission from the associate dean of their current major and the associate dean of their intended major.
