​​Changing Your Major

There are many reasons for changing your major:

  • You may have discovered a new interest and career field.

  • Your grades may not be what is required in your current major.

  • The classes you're required to take are different from what you expected.

  • Your career goals may be changing as you decide about the kind of personal and professional life you'd like to have.

Steps to Help You:

  • Visit the Oiler Success Center, Old Main 122 for individual help looking at your options.

  • Learn everything you can about the new major/s you're considering- read the program webpages, meet with program faculty and talk to upperclassmen in the program.

  • Talk to friends in the majors that interest you.


When You're Ready to Change Your Major:

  • Students can change their program of study in Workday. You may contact the Oiler Success Center on how to do this.
