Major Reselection

Overview

On average, college students change their major at least three times over the course of their college career. This may be due to loss of interest, denied admission into the desired program, being dropped from an academic program due to not meeting minimum requirements, or change in post-graduate career outlooks.

If a student undergoing reselection knows which major they are interested in pursuing, they should meet with an Academic Advisor from that major in order to discuss requirements, courses, and remove related holds. Some majors allow you to declare online, while others require an advising appointment.

If a student is uncertain of a major, we encourage them to have a conversation with their current Academic Advisor in order to identify alternative pathways. The advisor is able to determine if the student may need additional resources or may benefit from meeting an Academic Advocate or Career Services representative in order to choose the right major.
