Effective March 20, 2017, submission of a Change of Major will be made electronically in MyIUP. This collaboration between IT Services, the ADean Council, and ASC@IUP provides students with a simple process for making changes to their primary major only.
Students should be directed to the link under the Academics tab to select their new major; submission of the form will begin the approval process—department chair or program coordinator, then on to the assistant or associate dean, then on to the Registrar’s Office. Once the major has been changed by the Registrar’s Office, a new academic advisor will be assigned by the new academic department. The student will then receive e-mail confirmation that the process has been completed.
Academic departments with specific requirements for a Change of Major will be able to preview the student’s record prior to the start of the approval process. If denied, the student will receive notification of the decision. Academic departments are encouraged to review the electronic approval process to complement existing procedures for paper-based Change of Major procedures within their department.
