Frequently Asked Questions


What if I wanted to change majors?

Many college students change their major during their college careers. Changing majors and transferring between departments is not unusual. Your advisor can help you link up with an advisor in your new major, as well as tell you what paperwork needs to be completed to make the change official.


What are the general education requirements?

The most up-to-date general education requirements can be found on the Registrar’s website.


How do I get permission to take a class that is full or repeat a course?

If you need to repeat a course or if you need to take a class that is full, please contact your academic advisor. They will let you know what you need to do.
