Change of Major


1. Within a faculty

A student may add or drop a course or change a section in his/her registration schedule during the add/drop day only. To be eligible for a change of major within the same faculty, the student must meet the requirements for admission to the new major. He/She must submit a petition for change of
major provided by the Registrar’s Office. The request for the student’s admission is
considered by the new department and by the dean concerned. After approval, the petition
is sent to the Registrar’s Office for implementation.

2. From a Faculty to another Faculty

A student moving into another Faculty within the University is considered as a new student
by the new Faculty. The student is required to fill in a petition form for a change of major
provided by the Registrar’s Office and signed by the Business Office and by his/her
advisor. The form is to be submitted to the Registrar’s Office, which in turn will send the
form to the University Admission Committee.

 

    3. By University Action

    A student will be asked to change his/her major for any of the following reasons:
    If he/she is on probation and fails at the end of a semester or summer session in two or
    more of his/her major and/or core courses;
    If he/she fails to pass a major course after having repeated it twice.
