Secondary Major

The secondary major is an option used when a student completes course requirements for more than one major, but may not meet the requirements outlined for the multiple major option. For example, you may develop a course plan in which courses required for one major overlap with requirements for another. In these cases, you may declare a secondary major which results in the transcript bearing an annotation that the course requirements for that major have also been met.

Secondary majors do not appear on the diploma. Students who wish to add or remove a secondary major should do so through the Declaration or Change to Major, Minor, Honors, or Degree Program. The option to add or remove the seconday major/minor is not available via Axess.
