A. Student wants to change to a major in a different school/college BEFORE they attend Orientation:

  1.  Student  completes the online Change of Major/Program Form at the orientation website.
  2.  Admissions  reviews the form
    1. If the student is NOT registered for any classes or NSO session in Banner, Admissions changes the student’s major.
    2. If the student IS registered for any classes or NSO session in Banner, Admissions checks to see if the orientation session has already occurred.
      1. If the orientation session has not yet occurred, Admissions adds the student to Google Sheet NSO CoP Worksheet tab for the NEW school/college to review.
