Change Within a Program
Applicable to current students requesting a change within a program such as:
- MBA concentration
- Literacy program grade level
- Nursing program
To request a change as indicated above, students must complete the Graduate Academic Change form available in the Registrar’s Office. Upon signature from the graduate program director, the form is submitted to the Registrar’s Office for approval. If the change is approved, the Registrar’s Office will update the student’s record. Students are advised to verify the program change in Fish ‘R’ Net, complete a new degree evaluation, and update their long-range plan.
Complete Change of Program
If an enrolled student wishes to completely change from one major into a different major (for example; M.S. in special education to M.S. in literacy education), they must apply to the new program through the Office of Transfer and Graduate Admissions.
Students can apply to the new program online. A typewritten statement supporting the student’s interest in changing into a new program must accompany the application form. In some cases, new letters of recommendation and other materials may be requested. Students are advised to contact the Office of Transfer and Graduate Admissions to confirm application items required for submission. Complete applications are forwarded to the Admissions Committee for a decision. If accepted, the student must withdraw from his or her current program and submit an enrollment deposit for the new program. The student will be assigned a new advisor upon deposit. The Registrar’s Office will be notified so that the student’s record may be updated. Students are advised to verify the program change in Fish ‘R’ Net, complete a new degree evaluation, and update their long-range plan.
