Here are three easy things you can do now if you’re thinking about changing your major (especially if that means switching between schools or colleges).
1. Attend the Intra-University Transfer Fair on Tuesday, Feb. 19 (11 a.m. – 4 p.m., Schine Atrium).
What’s an Intra-University Transfer? Yes, we know. It doesn’t quite roll off the tongue. That’s the official name for switching schools/colleges at SU. The fair will include reps from all the schools/colleges, and you can talk to advisors about majors and minors and what you may need to do transfer. Keep in mind, each school/college has different requirements and deadlines.
2. Talk to your academic advisor.
Your home school or college’s advising office can help answer your questions about switching majors within your school/college or connect you to resources to transfer to another school/college at SU.
3. Consider a minor.
If you’re not sure about taking on a different major now, consider adding a minor to your academic repertoire. There are literally 100 minors to choose from! You can talk about minors with your advisor or at the Intra-University Transfer Fair, too (à la tip 1 and 2 above).
