Change of Major/Internal Transfer (undergraduate)

Students who elect to change their major should obtain the Major Change petition and policy form at the Registrar’s Office or by downloading the Change of Major form (pdf).  Internal transfers are subject to availability of space in the new department.  Chances of transfer are increased if application is made after freshmen declarations in February and before new transfer students are accepted in mid-March.

New incoming transfer students may not transfer from the department to which they were admitted into another department during their first year. Thereafter, internal transfer is subject to review and space limitations.
