Changing Academic Program (major, minor, etc.)
Students who are interested in changing their academic program should discuss their goals with their Academic Advisor. In most cases, the advisor will refer the student to the appropriate department and/or college for more information. Once a decision has been made to change the program, forms are available in Verhaegen 215 for the student to complete. If the student transfers to another college within the University, a new Academic Advisor from that college will be assigned.
Students who are still deciding on a major are encouraged to research the different majors available and to meet with a career counselor in Career Services.
