You will be evaluated for any majors and or minors currently on your record. If you wish to be considered for a different major or minor, you must meet any eligibility requirements per the College Catalog and formally change your major or minor online at The deadline to change your major or minor (including adding or dropping a major or minor) was September 17, 2014. Changes of major/minor submitted after September 17 will not take effect until spring 2015 and WILL DELAY YOUR GRADUATION.
