During their studies, students receive exposure to a number of different academic subjects, and some are attracted to programs different from their initial choices. A change of major is possible if the student requests the change online and has the request approved by the new academic unit head. After a change of major, courses unrelated to the new program will not be used in computing the student’s cumulative GPA. However, all earned grades and credits remain on the transcript.
Following a change of major, the degree requirements in the new major may be based on either the student’s original catalog, or the catalog in effect at the time of the change of major, or on a catalog between those two, subject to the approval of the academic unit head, as indicated on the submitted request.
The policy above applies equally to Florida Tech Online students, with the exception that a change of major will not change a transfer credit evaluation.
