Changing Majors

While it is possible under certain circumstances to change majors, it is always important to consider such a move carefully, keeping in mind that undertaking a new major program late in your college career will usually involve considerable additional time and effort.

Guidelines for Changing Majors

  • If you want to change from one single major to a different major in L&S, file a Change of L&S Major petition to have the new major posted and the old one removed.
  • If you have completed over 90 units, a Program Planning Form signed by the adviser in the new major is required. Your request will be subject to approval by the dean.
  • You may not change your major if it will extend your enrollment beyond the unit ceiling.
  • You may not change your major during your last semester before graduation.
