NOTE: You must meet the minimum entry requirements of the new major and satisfy any additional requirements of the new School or College in order to complete the new major.
NOTE: Adding a major, degree, or certificate are all distinct options. Speak with your advisor before submitting the form to ensure that you have selected the appropriate option.
If you change or add a major, a new academic advisor will be assigned by the new department/program. Students with two majors are not required to have an advisor in each department, but most opt to have an advisor in each academic discipline. When a new advisor is assigned, you will receive an email notifying you of the new advisor’s name and contact information.
Below are the main differences between a double degree and a double major. For further information, refer to the Baccalaureate Degree and Double Major (76-2) policy on the Office of the Registrar’s website here.
NOTE: Students who wish to pursue a double major in two different colleges (e.g. Albers School of Business & Economics and College of Arts & Sciences) would likely benefit from declaring a double degree in lieu of a double major due to the fact that they will likely meet the 225 credits given the variation across colleges.
*MATTEO RICCI STUDENTS: Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities may not select the double major option; they must select the double degree option and will be required to complete 180 credits for both degrees, not 225 credits.
