Change of Major

To change your major students must meet certain GPA and course criteria. The change of major criteria is different for new students and for those currently attending. Use the links below to get the change of major information you need:

*If you qualify for a change of major, you may only apply on-line through your "StudentAccess". Please remember grades must be recorded before you will be considered for admission into a Public Health Major. We will not grant any exceptions.

*Please note, summer sessions do not meet the requirement for "the quarter immediately preceding the change of major." You must use Fall, Winter or Spring for the quarterly GPA.
