Change of Major
Petition to Change of Major Curriculum Form (PDF) (MUST BE FILLED OUT ELECTRONICALLY) If you are using Mozilla Firefox, you must download the form first and then fill it out electronically.
Students have the opportunity to change to another major if they determine the course of study they are currently pursuing no longer matches their interests or career plans. In such cases, students should consult their advisers for guidance in making this decision and may contact the Career Center for career counseling to narrow their choice of potential majors.
Undergraduate students declaring a major for the first time or changing from one degree program or degree option program to another must complete and submit an approved Petition to Change Major Curriculum Form. Students may not change from a declared major to undeclared major status. These forms are available in most departments and in the Registrar's Office.
Students with 90+ units have a prerequisite of MHR 301 with a grade of C or better.
Academic advising appointments and/or change of major meetings may be required to ensure that students have the potential to succeed in the selected major. Students changing their major are subject to the major/minor requirements in effect at the time of the change.
With the exception of the impacted programs, changes of major will be considered for lower-division students in good standing (2.0 grade point average for all college-level work attempted; all Cal Poly Pomona work attempted; and all work attempted in the major core).
Upper-division students may be required to meet additional requirements. The department can require a minimum number of units or specify courses that must be completed with grades of C or better.
Change of major petitions for non-impacted majors may be submitted at any time during the quarter. However, change of major petitions must be submitted no later than the end of the fourth week of the quarter to be effective in the following quarter.
