Internal Transfers/Changing Majors 2016-17

The following information applies to Undergraduate students only for the 2016-17 academic year. Graduate students should contact Graduate & Professional Education.

The University of Delaware has developed a university-wide policy that enables students to move more freely among majors and colleges. This also provides students with the flexibility to pursue multiple majors and minors, to work at the interfaces between established disciplines, and to experience a broader selection of electives. However, there may be limited availability in some majors. See explanation of Restricted Majors below.

UD is committed to ensuring that all students are making informed decisions regarding their academic interests and their professional goals and objectives. The information below is based on updates provided from the colleges as received by the academic departments. Change of majors will be accepted during the academic year based on the information provided. Any changes to the internal transfer policy/change of major policy may only apply to the next academic year and will not be posted until after the current academic year.

Prior to requesting a transfer/change of major…

    • Please consult with your academic advisor.
    • See UD Baccalaureate majors offered. Some majors have restrictions and dates associated with processing internal transfer requests – see below.
    • Non-Restricted Majors have year-round admissions. Students must be in good academic standing (i.e., GPA should not be less than 2.0).
    • Review your Degree Requirements Using the What-If Report. This report shows how certain courses can apply towards degree requirements for a different/additional major or minor. Access this report from your UDSIS Student Center – Academics section, in the “other academic dropdown box”, by selecting What-If Report. (More Info).
