    Hello Krystal,

    You do not need to submit a new application in order to change your major. In fact, changing your major is easy and simple. All you have to do is log into your student portal account for the college and make the change yourself. There will be an option available to you that allows you to select a new major and click on save.

    Please let me know if you are able to do this and if you have any additional questions, feel free to let me know so that I can help you more. Thanks.

    Hello Bilal, 

    You do not need to submit a new application in order to change your major. In fact, changing your major is simple. All you have to do is, log into your student portal account for the college and make the change yourself. This username and password can be obtain directly by contacting the college if you do not happen to know what it is. There will be an option available to you after you sign in that allows you to select a new major and click on save. 

    Please let me know if you are able to do this and if you have any additional questions, feel free to let me know so that I can help you more. Thanks.

  • I submitted an application and I want to change my major but I know you don't have to submit another application. How and where can you change majors?

    Hello Julie

    Once you have submitted your application, the information on it cannot be changed online, however, you can change your information with the campus by contacting them. We recommend contacting your Admissions and Records department at your college to update and correct the information that needs to be changed. Your Admissions and Records office will have access to your records and confirm if there is an error on the application and how to fix this information. To find your admissions and records office contact information please look here
