2015-2016 Catalog Year

Change of Major (Undergraduate)

An undergraduate student wishing to change his or her major must submit a completed Change of Major/Minor/Catalog Year form to the college advisor for the new program. If pursuing a single Major/Degree, a maximum of two can be declared.

A student wishing to change his or her major to a limited access program or an undergraduate student wishing to enter a graduate program must formally apply to the relevant program. Students may not use the Change of Major/Minor/Catalog Year form to change from degree to non-degree status.

Advisors in the College of Health Professions and Social Work have the authority to correct majors of students officially admitted into an individual academic program within the college. This college-specific policy superseded university policy that requires students to individually submit a Change of Major form. Unless otherwise specified, lower-level College of Health Professions and Social Work students dismissed from limited access academic programs become undeclared. Upper-level students must declare a new major.

Students should be aware that changing majors may result in an excess hours surcharge.
