Change of Major
Some colleges and programs have additional admission standards that exceed the requirements for admission to WVU. If you do not meet the requirements, the Office of Admissions will not be able to process your change.
To change your major, please contact your academic adviser.
Students applying to be readmitted to West Virginia University will be readmitted
into their previous major.
