Changes and Drops

Drop a Major or Minor

Before dropping a major or minor, we recommend that you speak both with your major or minor advisor and your class dean.  Once you are confident about your decision, simply submit an email request to the Office of the Registrar (see Contact Us) with your name and ID# and the major or minor you wish to drop. 

Please note, your email will create a ticket.  Once your request has been processed you will receive a notice from the ticket system.  Simply reply to your original ticket if you have any additional questions or followup information.

Changing a Major or Minor

Before changing a major or minor, we recommend that you speak both with your major or minor advisor and your class dean.  This will ensure that all requirements for both your major (or minor) and your degree are still being met. 

Changes to an Existing Major or Minor

In order to change the course listing on your major or minor, complete a new declaration form and note that you are making a change to your existing declared major or minor.

Switching Major or Minor

In order to switch to a different major or minor you must first drop an existing major or minor.  Follow the instruction above to drop a major or minor.  Then submit a new (paper copy) major or minor declaration form, complete with signatures, to the Office of the Registrar.
