Change of Major

Newly Admitted Students

Newly admitted students must first earn an SJSU GPA during their first semester before submitting a change of major request. Newly admitted students cannot change their major prior to or during orientation and will need to attend orientation with the college housing their admitted major. However, students with an interest in changing their major will have an opportunity to let the orientation advisors know that they plan to change majors. This information will be taken into consideration when advising students for their first semester.

Navigating the major change process can feel confusing. It is understandable to have questions about this process. If you are looking to change out of a CHHS major, make an appointment at our center. One of our advisors can help you determine what you need to do to get into your desired major.
