Change of Program/Major

Any student who changes majors must complete a change of program request available here.

When making a formal application for a change of program, the student may request that specified courses required for the first major that the student received a D+, D, D- or F be excluded from the second major. The following conditions will prevail:

  1. Course to be excluded was required in the previous program,
  2. Course can only be applied to the area of liberal arts and science electives and free electives,
  3. Once approved, both credit(s) and grade points will be excluded from calculation toward the second degree,
  4. Student must initiate the request in writing (email) to the registrar.

The student may choose to keep some courses from the previous program and drop others. All courses taken remain on the student’s transcript as part of the complete record, but the courses excluded will not be added to the cumulative GPA. Students who have applied and been accepted into a new program will be assigned a new academic adviser by the chair of the new academic program.
