Changing your Major

In the academic life of many students, there comes a time when feel the need to "change their major" or academic plan. At Indiana University East, it is a relatively simple process.

Prior to changing majors, students are encouraged to meet with, or talk to, their current academic advisor, as well as an academic advisor in the new program in which they are interested.

Four steps to changing your major:

  1. Pick up a Change of Major Form from the Office of Student Records, Whitewater Hall, Rm 116. or click here to access the form online. If you access the form online, you will need to print the form.

  2. [Recommended, but not mandatory.] Seek educational advise from your current academic advisor.

  3. Take (or send) the Change of Major Form to your new academic advisor for his/her signature.

  4. The signed Change of Major Form should then be forwarded to the Office of Student Records (WZ 116) for processing.
