Change of Major/Minor

You can declare or change your 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.

Procedures for Declaring or Changing Your Major

Residential Students

  • Visit the Change of Major online request form
  • Majors changed after the start of classes of each semester will NOT be effective until the following semester.
  • You will be assigned to a CASAS Professional Advisor specific to your major. If you are changing majors, your advisor may also change.
  • Residential Freshmen & Sophomores with questions about graduation and degree requirements should check with their CASAS Professional Advisor.
  • Residential Juniors & Seniors with questions about advising or course scheduling should check with their Faculty Advisor.
  • Changes to your major will not be permitted once you start your final courses for the current semester and have a Degree Completion Application on file. For questions about your remaining degree requirements, check with your Academic Evaluator.
