Declaring a Program of Study (Changing Your Major)
What if I want to change my program of study?
Current and newly admitted students are required to contact an advisor representing the new program of study they wish to pursue. Newly admitted students are strongly encouraged to do this before attending student orientation.
Students that have not been formally admitted to Eastern Kentucky University may contact the Office of Admissions to have their application updated to reflect their newly chosen program.
How do I add or change a major, minor, concentration, or certificate?
You will first need to complete the Program of Study - Declaration form. Some students may have special conditions regarding major changes; be sure to follow the instructions detailed on the form carefully! A "What-If" audit from Degree Works should be printed and included with the form.
Once the form is completed you must meet with an advisor representing the new program you have chosen to review the "What-If" audit and receive written approval for the change. Students that are only removing a minor do not need written approval.
Students that have earned 105 credit hours or more are also required to complete the Petition - Change Major After 105 CR. HRS. form in addition to the Program of Study - Declaration form.
What if I am not sure which program of study I want to pursue?
Students are encouraged to speak with an advisor for any program they are considering. Advisors are able to provide detailed insight into program requirements, how changing will impact your progress, and help ensure you find the best program for you!
Students can also find additional information regarding each program that is offered at EKU through the Academic Programs and Curriculum Guides page.
