General Change of Major Information

First-year students may not change majors until after the deadline for withdrawal from classes (W deadline) in Fall semester. Non-transfer students are allowed one unrestricted change of major prior to earning 60 hours. There are a few majors that have been granted exceptions to this rule (CS, ME, ISYE, Music Technology). After earning 60 hours, students are only allowed to change majors at the discretion of the new major. 

Transfer students are only granted changes at the discretion of the new major.

The GT Change-of-Major form is available from the Registrar’s website, as is information about general change-of-major policy.

Students considering a Change of Major are also encouraged to make an appointment with an Exploratory Advisor. Appointments can be made in AdvisorLink.

To learn more about the specific change of major requirements for each major, please refer to the information in the table below.
