Major/Minor Changes

Declaration of a Major and a Minor, if applicable

Students must declare a major by the time they complete 40 semester (60 quarter) units of coursework listed on their transcript. For those majors that require a minor, the minor must be declared before students attain junior standing, i.e., have 60 semester (90 quarter) units of coursework listed on their transcript. Students must declare the catalog under which they intend to graduate when they file for graduation.

If a student decides to change his/her major, it is the student’s responsibility to submit a formal Change of Major form to the Office of the Registrar (SA 103, 661-654-3036).
