Change of Major

Students wishing to change their major to Nutritional Science must obtain a Change of Major Form [pdf] from the department in which they are currently majoring or from the Undergraduate Education office. The form requires the signature of the Chair of the Department of Nutrition, Food Science, and Packaging. The completed form needs to be returned to the Office of Admissions and Records. The change of objective is not official until the completed form is on file. Incoming students should ask for their file when leaving their old major and bring it to the Nutrition, Food Science, and Packaging Department in order to assure continuity of the student’s records.

Applications to the concentration in Dietetics are accepted twice a year, while the other Nutrition, Food Science, and Packaging concentrations are accepted on a rolling basis.
