Declaration or Change of Major/Minor Process

Students may declare or change their major immediately upon entering Liberty University.  Declaring or changing a major does not imply acceptance into programs such as nursing, teacher licensure, or athletic training.  Such programs have specific requirements before acceptance is granted.
