Change of Major

Admissions Criteria

In order to change your major into the SJMC, you must have at least a 2.5 USC GPA.  Additionally, all new SJMC students will have to attend an orientation session.


Procedure for Changing Your Major

The procedure to change your major varies depending on your current academic status. If you meet the admissions criteria listed above, use the chart below to navigate changing your major into the SJMC.

Are you a first-semester freshman and want to change your major to the SJMC?

First semester freshman students who want to change their major into the SJMC can do so after their first semester grades have posted. 

After visiting a change of major advisor in the University Advising Center and completing the change of major paperwork, please sign up for a change of major session on either Aug. 22, 2017 or Aug. 24, 2017. Additionally, you will need to drop off your change of major paperwork at the SJMC Student Services Office, located at 800 Sumter Street, Ste. 118, so we can have your major change completed when you arrive.
