Major Advising

Change of Major Request

If you are looking to change your major make an appointment with one of our advisors so we can help you determine what you need to do to get into your desired major. 

Change of Major Form

The change of major process for each CoSS major varies depending on department requirements as well as impaction thresholds. However, every major requires that you fill out a "Change of Major Form". There are two forms, and the form you use depends on how many units you have. You can also visit the main SJSU "Change of Major" site for more information.

Form(s) needed:
