Students registering for 20 or 21 credit hours in one quarter need to submit a credit overload form. A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher is required for approval. Students should be aware that any credits above 18 result in additional tuition charges. Contact the Bursar's Office for information about tuition and fees.
Declare or Change Major/Degree
To change or declare a major/minor/degree type, students will need to complete the Application to Declare or Change Undergraduate Degree/Major/Minor form (found on the Registrar's Forms page). If students are updating their major or degree, they will need to receive a signature from the departmental contact. No signature is required to update minors. Once completed, students need to submit their completed form to the Office of the Registrar in University Hall.
Note: Students must have a declared major by the time they have earned 75 credits.
