Arnold School of Public Health

Change of Major

Are you a current student at USC who would like to join the Arnold School? We can help!

If you are currently enrolled in another college or school on the Columbia campus, you must apply to change your major to the Arnold School of Public Health.

The next round of applications will be considered for Summer/Fall 2021 admission.

If you need assistant making immediate academic plans, please see an Exploratory Advisor in the University Advising Center located in the Close-Hipp Building.


Students must attend an Arnold School New Major Information Session prior to applying. Sessions will be offered throughout the Spring 2021 semester.

Sessions are held via Microsoft Teams. Students should download the Microsoft Teams application to their smartphone or access through their computer or other device. A link for the session will be sent to the student’s Gamecock email the day prior to their scheduled New Major Information Session.
