Change of Major Policy/Procedure
Change of Major requests cannot be processed during University grading period.
Starting January 31, 2019 All students who are admitted to a College of Technology major or submit a request to change to a College of Technology major must enroll in at least one course each semester in approved coursework in the major.
Students not enrolled in College of Technology major coursework are encouraged to meet with an advisor to select an appropriate schedule and submit a request to change major after they have enrolled.
Any student who submits a change of major request must meet stated admission criteria and be enrolled in College of Technology coursework. Students who fail to meet both the admissions and enrollment criteria will be denied.
