Declaring a Major

If you have already completed a full semester (spring or fall) as a UD student and have chosen a major that you meet the requirements for, you can submit a Change of Major form. You cannot submit a Change of Major yet if a) you are a new student (first-year or transfer) in your first semester, b) the major you want has specific application dates, and/or c) you do not meet the requirements for the restricted major. For application dates and requirements, see the Restricted Majors page for your Catalog year: 2017-2018 or 2018-2019.

  • For students who want a major in the College of Business and Economics, you can apply starting October 15th, as long as you meet the minimum requirements.
  • For students who want a major in the College of Engineering, you can apply after your fall semester grades have been published and as long as you meet the minimum requirements.

New first-year and transfer students whose entry term is Fall 2019 can submit a Change of Major form for an unrestricted major (any major not listed on the Restricted Majors page) starting October 23 (after the withdrawal deadline).

You can find the Change of Major form in UDSIS. Here are some tips when submitting the form:

  • If you are submitting a request for more than one program (e.g. double majors, a major and a minor, etc.), put in separate entries for each program. It will not accept a major and a minor in the same line.
  • Submit the form itself. Adding the lines for each program is not submitting the form. Make sure you complete the page asking why you are requesting the change.
  • Allow some time for the form to process. It needs to be approved by the department and then processed by the Registrar. You can see the status in Web Forms by reviewing the form in the Out Basket tab.

We encourage students to declare a major by the end of their sophomore year. If you are in your second or third year and are undecided or don’t meet the requirements for your intended major, schedule a meeting with your UST advisor to explore your options.

Drop-in Tutoring and More

Drop-in tutoring provided by the Office of Academic Enrichment begins today! Take advantage of all the free* academic assistance offered on campus before you are struggling in a course. Even if you expect to do well, why not use tutoring services to make sure you do your best?

In addition to drop-in tutoring, OAE has workshops both in-person and online, including topics such as time management, reading strategies, and choosing a major.

OAE also provides the following services:

  • Academic Intakes — Don’t know what kind of academic assistance you need? Meet with an OAE staff member to assess whether you need some help with note-taking, study skills, etc., or a referral to another office on campus.
  • Study Groups — You can request a free tutor for your study group (or 5-15 people).
  • Individual Tutoring — If you would like an individual tutor, you can find one on OAE’s database. This service is not free unless you are part of certain programs that waive these fees.
  • PASS Program — This is a free service offered for specific courses to supplement instruction without the instructor.

You can find additional academic resources on the OAE website including links for the ISE lab and the Writing Center.

*Free services on campus aren’t actually free. You are already paying for them with your student fees. So use what you’ve paid for!
