How to Declare/Change Your Major/Minor

  1. Log into http://my.tcu.edu using your user name and password.
  2. From the main menu, click on “Student Center” in the Student Quick Links
  3. Then click on “My Academics.”
  4. Click on “View or Change Major/Minor.”
  5. Check the box “Check here to add, change or drop your major or minor”

Major

  1. Select the major you wish to change from the drop down menu.
  2. Select the department of your desired new major.  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the departmental options.
  3. Next, select the specific code for your desired new major.  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the major options.
  4. If you would like to declare a second major, select the department of your desired secondary major.  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the departmental options.  Skip this step if you do not want a second major.
  5. If you have selected a second major, then select the specific code for your desired secondary major.  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the major options.
  6. Double majors wishing to add an additional major can do so where it states “Select an additional major for double majors.”  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the departmental options.


    Minor


  7. To declare or change your minor, select the minor you wish to change from the drop down menu.
  8. Next, select the specific code for your desired new minor.  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the minor options and select the appropriate one.
  9. Repeat the process above in the second set of minor change boxes if you would like to declare a second minor.
  10. To drop a current minor, use the “Drop my minor” drop down menu.


    Double Degrees


    Students who earn double degrees will actually earn two separate degrees with two separate diplomas (i.e., a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance plus a Bachelor of Arts in English).  Earning double degrees requires students to complete at least 30 additional hours, i.e., at least 154 credit hours.
    • A double major is just one degree with two majors and does not necessarily require additional hours above the minimum number required for the bachelor’s degree.  An example is a Bachelor of Arts with majors in English and history.
  11. If you wish to declare double degrees (rather than double majors), then select the department of your desired second bachelor’s degree from the drop down menu.
  12. Next, select the specific code for the major of your second bachelor’s degree.  Click on the looking glass (looking glass) to see all of the major options.
  13. If you would like to DROP a second degree that you currently have, but no longer want, then do so in the drop-down menu under “Drop my Double Degree.”

    Career Track

  14. If you wish to pursue a specific career track, select the appropriate one from Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Law, or Allied Health; otherwise, skip this section.
  15. If you wish to delete a career track that you currently have, but no longer want, then select “Delete Career Track.”

    Finalizing Your Selections

  16. In the provided box, explain the changes you wish to make.  For example:  “I would like to declare my major as BS in POSC with a general business minor.”  Include your telephone number so that the Registrar’s Office can contact you if they have questions.
  17. Once you have completed your selections, check the box at the bottom of the page.
  18. To complete the transaction, you must click on the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.

An e-mail will be sent to the dean’s office of your selected major(s) for the dean’s approval.  You will be notified via e-mail whether the dean accepted or denied your request.

Students who have questions about this process should contact the Registrar’s Office at 817-257-7825, Sadler Hall, room 1006.
