Changing my Major or Exploring other Majors

Everything you need to know

Student looking at a computer

There are a few ways to begin changing your major, but first, let’s try to clear up some confusion. Students admitted to the S&T Advising Center will be asked to fill out an “Undergraduate Request to Change Major” form to apply to transfer to their chosen undergraduate engineering or computer science program once they complete the degree program entrance requirements.

Students admitted to the S&T Advising Center interested in changing or exploring a different major should consult their advisor before completing a change of major form.

If you are undecided or unsure of your major, you can meet one on one with your advisor to discuss and navigate your professional interests and goals. Additionally, you can be connected to faculty advisors to explore specific majors, minors, emphasis areas and other career interests. Explore “Career Decision Making” to find career interest inventories and more information on career counseling.



Advising tools and forms

If you aren't sure who your advisor is, you can quickly log in to Joe'SS to find out. Once you are logged in, click on the "Academic Records" tab, and then click on "My Advisors". 

The schedule planner tool within Joe'SS can easily create class schedule options in a couple of minutes. It allows you to compare multiple class schedule options side-by-side, and you are able to add breaks to avoid scheduling conflicts. Once satisfied with the schedule, you can import your desired schedule into Joe'SS to register.

The degree audit is an automated report reflecting your academic progress toward completing a degree. You can request a degree audit for your major. In addition, you can request "What If" reports for other majors you may be considering. The report automatically places your Missouri S&T coursework, transfer courses, and courses in progress within a series of requirements and sub-requirements for a specific degree program.

You should not rely on the degree audit without talking with your academic advisor.
