Students are very often unsure of their educational and vocational goals. As a result, they may decide to change their major before completing their education. Students who wish to change their curriculum should contact Student Development to make an appointment. The student will have an opportunity to discuss the reasons for the change and its appropriateness in relationship to their goals. The Curriculum Change process is designed to accommodate currently matriculated students who wish to change their academic program. The application is also available on Banner Web under the Student Services and Financial Aid tab. Click on Student Records and select Curriculum Change Application.
High Demand Programs:
The following programs have specific admission requirements and prerequisite coursework that must be completed to be eligible for a curriculum change: Animal Management, Massage Therapy, Medical Assistant, Phlebotomist, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology, and Surgical Technology. A list of requirements is available in the college catalog and the Student Development Office. Students interested in the Nursing and Practical Nursing programs should contact Admissions for specific admission requirements and prerequisite coursework.
Curriculum change applications for high demand programs are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. There is limited space in a number of programs. If a student does not gain entry to the curriculum of choice, a counselor will explore possible options with the student.
If ALL program admission criteria have been met at the time the Curriculum Change Application is filed, and there is space in the program, the Curriculum Change Application will be processed. The student will be mailed an acceptance letter and will be sent a T-Wolves email confirming the change into the new program. Students must maintain matriculated status and a 2.0 GPA (or C average) while waiting to enter a new program. If either of these conditions is not met at the end of the semester that a curriculum change application was filed, students will receive a letter explaining that they are no longer eligible for their program of choice.
