  4. Declare the major. Submit the online change of major form. This is a simple form that should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. 
  5. Make an appointment with Dr. Guerrero. After you have submitted the form, email the department chair, Dr. Mario Guerrero (mag@cpp.edu), to set up a short Zoom advising meeting.
