Declaration and Change of Majors and Minors

Declaring a Major

Students must declare their academic major by the first day of the fifth semester of full-time academic work by completing a Major Update form. The form will be routed to the student’s academic department for approval. Students who fail to do this will be prohibited from enrolling in classes or making any class schedule changes. Students may add a new major up to the time at which they apply for graduation. If you wish to add a major after applying for graduation, consult your academic specialist in One Stop to verify that the major can be completed by the graduation time you selected.

Changing a Major

Students requesting a change of major must complete the Major Update form. If required, One Stop will route the form to the new department/program to obtain approval. It is recommended that students meet with representatives of the new department. Note: Some academic majors require an application; check with the department to determine the application process and any associated deadlines.

Declaring or Changing a Minor

Students requesting a declaration or change of minor must complete a Minor Update form and obtain approval from the department/program. Some academic minors require an application process. Students may add new minors up to the time at which they apply for graduation. If you wish to add a minor after applying for graduation, consult your academic specialist in One Stop to verify that the minor can be simultaneously completed with the major degree program.
