Hello! My name is Chelsea Tarbox and I am a
Peer Advisor for The Office of First Year Advising
& Exploration here at UCF. Today, I am going to
be talking to you about how to go about
changing your major or minor or to declare a
major or minor through your myUCF.
When changing or adding a major that is
restricted or limited access (for example
General Business or Radio-Television) students
should select the "Pending" version of the major
until they have completed the program
admission requirements for the respective major.
So now I'm going to show you how to perform
this action through myUCF access.
So the first thing you would do is to sign on to
your myUCF account.
You would then navigate over to the Student
After this page loads, you would want to
navigate over to the "other academic" dropdown
menu, and you're going to select the first option,
the "change major: request", and then click the
little arrow tab.
Here you would want to read the warnings and
instructions before proceeding, then click next.
If a student wanted to add a minor, major, or
certificate, you would navigate over to the "add"
buttons. If a student wanted to change their
minor, major, or certificate, you would want to
select the "change" option, and NOT the add
This student is a history major, with a minor in
anthropology, and a certificate in diplomacy.
Let's pretend that this student wants to change
to a psychology major. We would navigate over
to the 'major' section and we would hit "change".
Once this page has loaded, you are going to
want to navigate over to the magnifying glass
under "requested college".
Since this student wants to change to
psychology, we are going to navigate over to
"College of Sciences" which is abbreviated by
C-O-S, or "COS".
Now we are going to do the same thing, but
under requested major, minor, or certificate.
You are going to want to select "look up" to
show all of your options.
We are going to navigate down to the
"Psychology Bachelor of Sciences" option.
Once this has been completed, you are going to
want to navigate over to the "next" button.
So here we have the confirmation page, this
page contains all of the information that you
would need to review and make sure is correct
So as we can see, this student is changing from
their previous College of Arts and Humanities, to
the College of Sciences. And this student is
also changing their major from the History
Bachelors of Arts track, to the Psychology
Bachelors of Sciences track.
So once you have reviewed this page and made
sure that all of the information is correct, you
would want to hit the submit option.
If a student wanted to "add" or "change" a minor
or certificate, you would repeat the same
process under either the minor or the certificate
From all of us here at the First Year Advising
and Exploration Office, thank you for watching
and listening. We wish you a wonderful
semester, GO KNIGHTS!
