Students may change their curriculum if they find that their abilities and interests are better suited to another curriculum. When considering a curriculum change, the student should explore the possibilities and realities of the new program with his/her academic advisor. Length of time needed to complete degree requirements, prerequisites, and suitability of a new curriculum can be discussed at this time. The student will be referred to the chairperson of the curriculum in which the student is interested for additional information. In changing curriculum, a student should understand that no credit will be granted for courses previously taken that do not apply to the new program. Eligibility for TAP awards for students changing academic programs will be based on the student's CPA and accrued credits in the old curriculum prior to the effective date of the program change.
