How to Change My Plan or Major

Plan/major changes are completed if you are looking to make changes to your plan/major within your current program. For example, changing from the Business Management - Human Resources plan to the Business Management - Marketing plan.

Before attempting to change your plan/major, please check your program information to find out if and when you must complete this process.

For programs with specific plan requirements, you will be notified by your program department after winter grading if you do not meet your plan's criteria.

Depending on your program, you may be only permitted to make one plan/major change through your RAMSS account. For any further plan/major changes, you must submit a Plan Change Form to your program department.

You can access the Change Plan/Major menu option through the Academics tile on your student home page.
