A major change into Business Preference can be requested by meeting with a Broad academic advisor, or online.
To be approved to change into Business Preference, students must have a 3.2 minimum cumulative GPA (underlying numeric grades from Fall 2020-Summer 2021 will be used in place of S/NS notations to calculate the cumulative GPA for major change consideration).
Students who have already reached 56 credits, or are reaching 56 credits through their current semester enrollment, will not be approved for a major change; those students must apply to Broad through the secondary admission process and will be changed into a Broad major if their application is successful.
Students already admitted to a Broad degree-granting major (Accounting, Finance, Human Resource Management, Management, Marketing, Supply Chain Management) can change to a different Broad degree-granting major by meeting with a Broad academic advisor, or completing the online form.
Students changing to a major outside the Broad College must follow the new College’s process. The Broad College cannot change students into a non-Broad major.
If you declared or were admitted to a minor that you no longer intend to complete, you must formally request the minor be removed from your academic record. The Minor Withdrawal Form will allow you to complete this process for Broad-sponsored minors; please see an advisor in the respective department for non-Broad minors.
