Change of Major/Program of Study

A graduate (nondoctoral) student matriculated in a certificate/degree program who would like to enroll in a different graduate program, after consulting with their academic advisor, must apply to the intended program by submitting the Change of Major form.

Previously awarded transfer credit awards are subject to change as a result of a program change. Students on financial aid or an international student visa are responsible for understanding the impact that results from a program change.

Doctoral students must consult with their program director or designee.


Only university-approved concentrations are noted on a student's official academic record. If a student pursues a customized specialization, no concentration will be noted on their official academic transcript. Students who wish to pursue a customized specialization must consult with their academic advisor and seek approval from the academic program.
