Change your Major/Minor



If you are considering changing or declaring a major in the College of Arts and Sciences, CASA recommends that you follow these guidelines before making any changes:

  • Run a "what if" degree audit in Bearweb for the major you have selected. This audit shows you what is required for your new major and allows you to see how your current and completed courses will be applied. To run a "What if" audit select - BearWeb - Student Academic Services - Student Records - Degree Audit.

  • Schedule an appointment with a counselor in the Office of Career and Professional Development. CASA highly recommends that students consider completing the career counseling appointment series prior to changing their major.
