Academic Regulations & Procedures
Full-time students must declare a major by the end of the fifth week of the term in which he or she is enrolled.
Undergraduate students who transfer from one program to another, when such transfer does not represent a change in career objective, will not be allowed further transfer for one year unless a change in career objective is documented. Students who wish to transfer from a co-op to a non-co-op program, or vice versa, should consult the "Student Transfer Policy" as documented in the Co-operative Education section of the University Catalog.
A 'Change of Program' Form may be obtained in the student's Program College and must be submitted, as the form specifies, to either the SRC Office or the Sudent Receivables Office (located on the first floor of the Main building) when the appropriate signatures have been obtained.
The 'Change of Major Program' must be submitted by the end of the first week of the term in which the change is to be effective. Any program change submitted after the first week of the current term will be effective the following term.
Policy and Procedure
Graduate students may transfer from one graduate program to another with the written approval of both departmental graduate advisors and the Graduate Studies Office. Student's should obtain the "Graduate Transfer Form" from the Graduate Studies Office.
In order to gain approval to transfer into a new program, graduate students must meet with the program's graduate advisor who will review their current transcript and possibly their original admissions information. If admissable to the new program, the graduate advisor will sign the transfer form. The student must then be released from the original program by meeting with that department's graduate advisor, who will sign the transfer form if the release is approved. Students must receive written approval from both graduate advisors before submitting the form to the Graduate Studies Office for final approval.
If final approval is granted to transfer into a new graduate program, the student should meet with the graduate advisor of the new program to establish a plan of study for that program.
