Changing Your Major
Download the change of major form (PDF). (It’s technically called the Program/Major/Minor/Advisor Declaration Form.)
If you are changing to Undeclared, an advisor will be selected for you by Dr. Jody Fournier, Dean of Studies (Academic and Student Affairs).
If you have declared a major, and are changing that major, ask the department chair when s/he signs your form if you can select an advisor or if one will be assigned to you. If you can select an advisor then think back to a course you took in the major which you especially enjoyed. Approach that professor and ask if s/he would be willing to be your advisor. If you have not yet taken a course in that major, ask upper-class students who they recommend as an advisor, or ask the department chair for suggestions. Once you have an advisor within your major make an appointment, just to get to know him or her and orient yourself within the new major.
