In order to declare or change a major, add a concentration, track, option, or plan, students must submit a Change of Major form with the Office of the Registrar. Students will be held to the major requirements for the catalog year in which the Change of Major is submitted. Dual concentrations within the same major will require approval from the Department Chair. A processing fee of $6.00, per major, will be charged for each change or addition. An email to your CSUSB email account will be sent to you as notification that an updated PAWS* reflecting the change or addition is available to view and print approximately two weeks after the form has been submitted.
*If you are a new student and have not received an email notification of your PAWS completion, please note that you will not be able to view a completed (or updated) PAWS.
- Criminal Justice
- Kinesiology: Allied Health
- Social Work
Changing a major to an impacted major requires an application request to change your current major to the impacted major. Because each impacted major requires different eligibility requirements, students must apply and meet with an advisor within the impacted major to determine eligibility. If the student is approved, the Application for Impacted Majors will be signed by the advisor as approval for submission to the Office of the Registrar for processing. The application form can be obtained at the Office of the Registrar, UH-171, or you may download the PDF form.
