Information for Major Academic Plans

DEGREE RELATED

Declare or Change a Major or Minor - It is usually a simple matter to declare a major if you are currently "undeclared" or to change from your current major to another one. Log into your portal to complete the necessary steps.

Clearance in the Major - The Clearance in the Major Form (a.k.a. Grad Check) must be completed by each student during the semester prior to his/her final year of study.

Change to Clearance in the Major - If a student decides to take a different class than he/she specified on the Clearance in the Major form, a second form must be completed to substitute the different course. The student's major academic advisor must submit this form by e-mail.

Petition a CE Program Requirement - Students may petition to make a substitution or change to CE program requirements. These requests usually involve substituting an unapproved course a student has already taken or plans to take against a similar but approved course. It is always better to file a petition before taking a substitute course, whenever possible. Petition requests are approved or denied by majority vote of the CE faculty. Students must consult with their major academic advisor when considering a petition.

To Drop a Course

To drop a course after the second week of classes, a Class Drop Request form must be completed including appropriate approval signatures. This form is used to drop classes after the Census date (end of the fourth week of classes).

To Add a Course

To add a course after the second week of classes, a Class Add/Update Request form must be completed including appropriate approval signatures. This form is used to add classes after the close of Portal Registration (end of the second week of classes) and for Independent Study, Internships, and other special courses.
