Change of Major/Minor Process

To request majors in:

  • Applied Nutrition

Students must request an appointment with Academic Advising at bhanadvising@udel.edu to apply for one of these majors. Following the appointment, if the student meets the criteria for the individual program, the student then makes their request via the “Change of Major, Minor, Concentration and Graduation Term” webform on UDSIS.

Additional GPA Requirements for Dietetics:

There is a 2.5 minimum GPA requirement for entry into the Dietetic major from another UD major as well as the completion of one semester of Chemistry - either CHEM 101 or CHEM 103.

Students are not required to meet with an advisor first, but may submit their request via the “Change of Major, Minor, Concentration and Graduation Term” webform in UDSIS. There is a 2.0 minimum GPA requirement for entry to these majors. Additional GPA requirements apply for continuing enrollment in and graduation from the Health and Physical Education major (please refer to the Health and Physical Education curriculum checksheet at www.udel.edu/bhan/advisement/checksheets.html).
