CHANGING PROGRAMS OF STUDY

Change of Concentration Within the Same Degree Program

Currently enrolled students who are considering changing their concentration  within the same degree program should consult with their department chair and academic advisor prior to requesting a change. Students in baccalaureate programs are eligible to request a change in concentration before the end of their third year. 

Students who wish to change their concentration within the same degree program must submit a completed Change of Concentration or Major Instrument Form to the Office of the Registrar to request the change. A change of concentration requires approval by the department Chair.

Students will be notified of the decision by the Office of the Registrar. Students whose requests have been approved will thereupon be subject to the graduation requirements of the new concentration or major instrument.

Change of Degree Program

Currently enrolled students who are considering changing to another degree program should consult with their current major advisor as well as the current and prospective departments’ Chairs prior to requesting a change. Students who have completed less than 50 percent of their current major’s degree requirements may be eligible to change programs.
