Important Considerations

A student may change their major at any time, however it is important to note that in order to ensure that the advising and registration process can occur under the new major, the student must adhere to the deadline date which corresponds with the "Last Day to Drop a Class," identified on the academic calendar.

If this deadline is not met, change of major requests will be processed as quickly as possible, but may not occur in time for the student to seek advising and register under their new major. 

New incoming students wishing to change their major should contact the Admissions Office until the date identified as the "Last Day to Add a Class" on the academic calendar.

After this date, all change of major requests should use this form. Students, after completing the top section of this form please print this document. You will only need to bring the first page with you for the identified representatives to sign, the other pages are for your reference. 

If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the Office of Career Services:
