Changing Your Major

Thinking of Changing Your Major?

It is not unusual to consider changing majors. Your Faculty Advisor, Academic Specialist and Career Advisor are important resources to consult with prior to making any decisions. 

Use Campus Resources

  • Conduct self-assessment with your Career Advisor. What are your interests? Skills? Values? Visit Career Resources for more.
  • Explore other majors using the College Catalog

Requests for change of major should start with your current Faculty Advisor. Final approval of the change of major requests rests with the division Dean responsible for the new program or that Dean's designee. The Dean will notify the appropriate Academic Specialist in the Registrar's office of the change of major.

Students who wish to change majors after being accepted and before the end of the first week of classes must contact the Admissions Office rather than the Registrar's Office.
