If you wish to change your major or if you are undeclared and wish to declare a major, discuss this decision with your academic advisor and complete the following steps:
- Print a copy of the Approval Form. Provide the information requested at the top of the form. Then, move to item 8 and insert your current major, as well as your intended new major.
- Obtain the signature of your current academic advisor.
- Return the form to the Registrar's Office and request that the Approval Form and a copy of your transcript be sent to the chairperson of department in which the major resides. The chairperson will accept, reject, or defer your request.
- Within one week, meet with the chairperson to learn the chairperson's decision. If you are accepted into the major, the chairperson will forward the decision (the Approval Form) to the Registrar's Office, who will change your major. This change will be recorded on your permanent record. Shortly after this, the Director of Advising and Retention or another representative of the Academic Resource Center will e-mail you the contact information of your new advisor.
