Undergraduate Studies offers major re-selection services to students who are at risk for not meeting their current major’s progression policy. Examples of degree progression standards include, but are not limited to: college or major GPA, D/F grade policies and/or course repeat/withdrawal policies. Specific progression requirements for individual academic programs are listed in the undergraduate catalog under each academic major (https://catalog.usf.edu/).
Major reselection advisors are here to help you create a parallel plan for a potential new major based on your goals, interests, and academic strengths. We can also provide you with resources to help improve your success in your current major. We hope that you are successful and can continue in your current major. Alternatively, you may decide you are no longer happy in your current major and would prefer to switch. Or, you may be required to re-select a major because you no longer meet the degree progression requirement for your original major. Either way, major reselection majors are here to make sure you are successful from this point forward.
Choosing a new major requires active participation by both you and the advisor. During the major re-selection process, your advisor will explore the degree options available to you and may refer you to campus resources that can further assist you in making an informed decision.
All degree plans and courses should be discussed with an academic advisor. Should you end up changing your major, you are expected to meet with your new academic advisor immediately upon declaring your new major.
We also have some resources for students who are interested in changing their major, but this process can look different depending on if you’re a new incoming student or if you’re a continuing student. Please select the description below that best fits your situation to find helpful information pertaining to you!
