How To Declare or Change a Major/Minor

Current students interested in declaring and/or changing their intended program of study are responsible for completing the Declaration or Change of Major/Minor form, which may be filled out on the Registrar's website.  Once completed you will recieve the filled out form via email. You must then print the attached PDF and take to your intended program of study's academic department for review, approval and the assignement of a new advisor.  Business students do not use the paper form but may change their major online at the Perdue Advising website.

Current students should make sure to be aware of any changes in advisor when changing academic programs in order to contact the appropriate advisor during program planning. Students should review their academic requirements report several weeks after declaring a change of major/minor in order to review new program requirements. 

Some programs have restrictions on changing to that major and may only accept new students at certain times of the year. It is always best for students to make contact with someone in the new department in order to be aware of any special circumstances related to declaring a major in that department. In most cases, students changing their major will be assigned a new advisor. Students should be aware of any changes in advisor assignment to ensure contact with the appropriate advisor during program planning. Students should also review their Academic Requirements Report after the declaration or change of major/minor form has been processed in order to view their new degree requirements.

***It is important that students declare or change their major/minor as soon as they start following a new program.  Some programs may not process major/minor changes during program planning.
