Change of Major Procedure 

General Guidelines: 

  • Students must complete at least one quarter at Cal Poly before entering into an Individualized Change of Major Agreement (ICMA). 

  • Review Cal Poly’s General Change of Major Policy in full. 

  • Students are allowed 1 ICMA per major.  Students who do not meet the conditions of their ICMA will not be issued another ICMA for that major.  

  • Students must be able to graduate in a timely manner. A realistic quarter-by-quarter graduation plan may be required to demonstrate whether this is feasible.

Step 1: Research 

Students are expected to research their options and make a well-informed decision. Choose two of the following research opportunities:

Step 2: Complete the Change of Major Inquiry Form

  • Complete the Change of Major Inquiry Form through your Cal Poly Portal 
    • Instructions found here: https://advising.calpoly.edu/change-majo
      • You will receive an email response from the Change of Major Coordinator within 10 business days with details regarding next steps. 

Step 3: Meet with Department Contact

  • Students deemed eligible for an ICMA should follow the steps laid out in the email response from department Change of Major Coordinator.
