How to Change Your Major

To change your major, follow the same steps you took to declare your major.

There can be many reasons to change your major, including:

  • Your interests have changed.
  • You planned to major in Business but weren't accepted to the School of Business.
  • You're not meeting academic requirements for your current major.
The Office of Academic Advising can help you think through some of the considerations involved in changing your major. The sooner you make this decision, the better. Your new major will probably have different prerequisite courses and requirements. Wait too long, and you might not be able to graduate on time.
