Change of Major Form for Undergraduate Students

Admitted Freshmen

Admitted freshmen will not be allowed to submit a request for a change of major until after the deadline for withdrawal from classes with a W grade in the first term of their enrollment. The change would be effective for the second term of enrollment. This includes a change of major within the student's current College. For freshmen admitted for Summer, the restriction is lifted after the withdraw deadline of their second semester of enrollment. All other restrictions also apply.

Transfer Students

Catalog policy describes the one unrestricted major change available to students admitted as freshmen. The information in the section above references when the one unrestricted change of major for freshmen is allowed to occur. It is important to note that transfer students are not allowed an unrestricted change of major.
