WHO CAN REQUEST A CHANGE OF MAJOR?

In order to request a change of major, you must be matriculated (accepted) in a degree program. If you are applying during the summer, you must have been matriculated and enrolled for the previous spring semester.

If you are non-matriculated or not currently enrolled, please apply through the Admissions Office.

WHEN CAN I REQUEST A CHANGE OF MAJOR?

Major change applications are accepted until the end of the 3rd week of classes for the effective term.

Note: Clinical Lab Technology, Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Radiologic Technology, and Surgical Technology are considered high demand degree programs and have specific admission requirements, deadlines and procedures. Some additional degree programs, such as Health Information Technology, accept students on a rolling basis until the major is at maximum capacity. Please click here to see health-related programs.
