Change of Degree Program

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. A change of degree program requires admission to another degree program. Students who have completed less than 50 percent of their current major’s degree requirements may be eligible to change programs.

To be considered for admission to another degree program, students are required to submit a completed short-form application for admission to the Office of Admissions and Records. Applications must be reviewed and approved by the admissions committee before students can be granted registration privileges for their new program. Note that F-1 international students who have recently changed their programs of study will need to promptly request a new I-20 from the Office of International Services.
