How to Change Majors
If you meet the entrance requirements or believe you will at the conclusion of this semester, you are invited to attend Change of Major (COM) Event. COM is the only way you can declare the business major (after census) and is hosted at the end of each academic term (fall/spring/summer). Summer 2023 COM event will be a LIVE virtual event held on Friday, Aug 11, beginning at 8:30am Mountain Time. The event will begin with a LIVE presentation followed by short individual academic sessions with advising staff. Please contact us starting on Monday, Aug 7 for a link to access the virtual event. The deadline to contact us to sign up for the event is Thursday, Aug 10 at 12pm.
To better prepare for Change of Major we recommend you:
- Register for nonbusiness courses prior to attending Change of Major*.
- Know your CSU ID number and which concentration you will declare (you must declare a concentration for your major to be changed).
- Have digital copies of any transcripts from transfer courses you've taken that have not yet been processed by CSU.
- Have access to your university email account.
- Log into the LIVE virtual event on-time. Students not logged in to the event by 8:30am Mountain Time will not be able to change their major until after the Change of Major Event.
*NOTE: There are no guarantees you will get into business courses by attending COM; you are highly encouraged to attend this event already registered for a full semester’s course load.
Academic Advising is not conducted during this event. Instead, the event is to officially change your major, find out who your new Academic Advisor will be, see where you are with curriculum completion, and register for open business courses for the approaching semester. You will schedule a full advising appointment with your new Advisor at the beginning of the approaching semester.
