Change of Major

To request a program change visit Student Academic & Financial Services to meet with academic counselor. If you are requesting a change into the Baking & Pastry Arts, Culinary Nutrition, Equine Business Management/Riding, Equine Business Management or International Hotel & Tourism Management bachelor’s degree programs you must complete a separate application and be accepted into the program. (See admissions criteria in current catalog.)

The ability to enter a new program is not guaranteed and is subject to space availability and you must meet eligibility criteria (as applicable). If you are unsure of your choices, it is recommended that you meet with an academic counselor. It is also recommended that you change your program (or declare your bachelor’s degree) as early as possible so that you may seek proper advice and facilitate new program registration.

Approved changes will become effective for the subsequent term if requested after the add/drop period. Registering for courses in the new program is your responsibility. The ability to register for courses in the new program is not guaranteed and is subject to space availability. Any change to a current program may delay graduation and impact satisfactory academic progress.

Undergraduate students may choose to focus their electives in a three (to five) course concentration. Some programs of study mandate the completion of a concentration. Beyond academic and personal enrichment, a concentration will reflect commitment to a particular area of study that may be impressive to prospective employers. Successful completion of a concentration will be recorded on your academic transcript.
