Adding or Changing Master's Degree Programs
Making changes with an active undergraduate degree
Coterminal students who wish to change from one master’s degree to another before conferral of their undergraduate degree may do so by taking the following steps:
- Contact a coterm advisor in Undergraduate Advising and Research to discuss plans for the coterm program switch.
- Apply to the new coterm program (please refer to the Applying to Coterm page for additional information). Students will want to secure admission to the new program before proceeding with the switch.
- Submit an approved Request to Permanently Withdraw from Degree Program form to a coterm advisor in Undergraduate Advising and Research. Note: all programs that have been discontinued will appear on the transcript in a 'Discontinued' status.
- Optional: a personal statement
Making changes with a conferred undergraduate degree
Once a coterm's undergraduate degree is conferred, students are able to request graduate program changes (including switching from one master's degree program to another and/or adding another graduate degree, such as a PhD) via the Graduate Program Authorization Petition process.
