Major & Minor FAQ
Academic minors are a prescribed group of classes consisting of 18 or more credits as described in Part 3 of the General Catalog (Regulation J-9). Some majors require a minor, for others it is optional. Check with your advisor for specifics about your degree program.
A change of major is recorded using a Change of Curriculum Form from the Registrar's website. You will need to complete the information on the form for both your current program and your new program and collect signatures to exit the old program and be admitted to the new one. Your academic dean's office can assist in filling out the form. Once the form is completed and signed, you must submit it to the Registrar's Office for processing.
