Changing Your Major

Students may not update (change) their own majors. Each major change must be handled by a UB staff person on the student's behalf.

How to Request Changes

Students should select the option that most directly applies to their needs:
  • To add or remove a major or minor that is part of another UB school (called 'program' in HUB), contact the advising home for that school (e.g., School of Management, School of Pharmacy, etc.).
  • To add or remove a minor within the College of Arts and Sciences, contact the department or program offering the minor.
  • To change or add a major within the College of Arts and Sciences, or to change a major in another school to a College major, students may do any one of the following:
    1. See an advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences department or program offering the major.
    2. Make an appointment with an advisor in this office.
    3. Complete and submit the form, below:
  • To change to a Combined Degree Program, see an academic advisor in this office
  • To change to a departmental honors program, see an advisor in the department
