Major Change Deadlines: October 1

The following Colleges or Schools have upcoming October 1st change of major deadlines:
- College of Nursing (application)

-College of Pharmacy (New Major Info. Session)

- Arnold School of Public Health (New Major Info. Session)

In general, students who are interested in changing majors to another college or school on campus should first meet with an Exploratory Advisor to ensure they meet all necessary requirements. If a student does not yet meet the requirements to change, Exploratory Advisors’ can assist students with planning courses to meet new major major requirements or to explore alternate academic options.


Hardship Withdrawal

Rather than the previous deadlines-based process, Hardship Withdrawal petitions are now reviewed monthly instead of six times a year. All information regarding Hardship Withdrawal including the petition process and online application is found in the ‘Withdrawal’ section of the University Advising Center Website.
