Changing majors is a common and straightforward process. As long as your grade point average is 2.00 or better, you will be able to transfer into virtually any major on campus. If your grade point average is below 2.00 you may not be able to transfer immediately. Most academic units, including the Rubenstein School, will not officially transfer a student to a new major if that student is on academic probation.
