Welcome!

Before attempting to log into the application system, please read the information below.

The Major/Minor Change Application is used to request one of the following changes to an academic plan.

  • For an approved major within the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) to change their major to another approved SEAS major (e.g., change approved major from mechanical to chemical engineering)
  • For an approved major within SEAS to add or drop a second approved SEAS major (e.g., add the aerospace engineering major while retaining a mechanical engineering major)
  • For an intended major within SEAS to change their major to another intended SEAS major (e.g., change intended major from mechanical to chemical engineering)
  • For a major outside of SEAS to change their major to an intended SEAS major (e.g., change major from physics to intended electrical engineering)
  • For any major to add or drop a minor (e.g., add the computer science minor)

Please note that our office processes requests only for majors and minors associated with the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Please contact other advising units for assistance with non-SEAS degree programs (e.g., mathematics, chemistry, physics, management, pharmacy).

The Major/Minor Change Application is not intended for the following student groups:
