Current Students at UD: Change of Major

If you are a student already enrolled at the University of Delaware, it is recommended to contact an Academic Advisor in the Department of Kinesiology and Applied Physiology. Meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee entry into a major; approval for change of major is contingent on available space. More information can be found on the Office of the University Registrar website.
