Change of Major

Students must be in good academic standing to change majors. Students wishing to change majors should complete a Change of Major Request Form in their academic advisor’s office before registration and no later than the first day of classes of a semester/term. If the change of major is approved, the student will then be responsible for meeting all program requirements and course prerequisites of the catalog in effect at the time of the change. The General Education or Core Curriculum requirements, however, remain those of the catalog in force at the time of matriculation unless the student specifically chooses those of a more recent catalog. In the first semester of change to a new major, the student must meet with an academic advisor to prepare a degree plan.

Deadlines and Fees

The Registrar’s Office will accept Undergraduate Change of Major forms for processing up to the close of business on the first day of classes of each semester term. Forms received after the first day of classes will be processed effective for the next/following semester/term.

All students are allowed to change majors twice in a given academic year at no charge. The academic year begins August 1st and is completed the last day of July each year.

If a student elects to change majors more than two times during an academic year, the third change requires a $25.00 fee. EXCEPTION: There is no charge to move to, or from, the “undeclared major” category.
