How to Change Majors

Are You Looking to Change Your Major or Add a Second Major?

It is important to meet with an advisor to have a conversation your new intended major. You will want to find out how your credits will apply, how long it may take you to finish the new major and what types of courses are required.

If you just want to change/add a minor or second major, you can fill out this form: Minor/Advisor Change Form

Students are welcome to initiate a major change at any time. However, if a student should elect to leave a major with differential tuition, the major change form must be submitted and processed prior to the week four census date for any potential tuition rate updates. Changes completed after the four-week census will update to the new major, but not be effective for tuition rate changes until the following term.
