Change of Major Application

To continue to enhance advising and help students change a major, the university now will have three common change of major times every year, instead of varying deadlines by colleges and departments. In addition, the process will be online. When a change of major time opens up, students can request a new primary major through Hokie SPA. Each college will run its own process to determine if it can accept the student and will then notify the student of the decision.

This process applies to students who wish to change their primary major. Requests for adding secondary majors will still follow the current paper process.

Step-by-step instructions available here on how to apply for a new primary major.

The next common change of major session will open December 19th.
