Change of Major

Within a Faculty

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 or she must submit a petition for a change of major provided by the Office of the Registrar. 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 Office of the Registrar for implementation.


New students are eligible to change major upon the completion of their first semester.

To a Different Faculty

A student moving into another Faculty within the University is considered a new student by the new Faculty. The student is required to fill in a petition for a change of major signed by the Business Office and by his or her advisor. It should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar.


    By University Action

    A student may be asked to change his or her major for any of the following reasons:

    • If he or she is on probation and fails at the end of a semester or Summer session in two or more of his or her major and/or core courses; and
    • If he or she fails to pass a major course after having repeated it twice.
