D’Amore-McKim School of Business Change of Major Process

Step One: Research Your Program of Interest

We recommend the following resources to determine whether your goals and skills are a good fit for the major and career you are considering.

  • Set up a meeting with Career Design.
  • Review our description and requirements for the BS in Business Administration (or any of our Business Administration combined majors), including the concentrations of interest to you.
  • Review the course catalog to read course descriptions for the classes that you would be taking for the new major. You should be interested in the classwork of your proposed major!
  • Consider the time and expense it will take to complete a business degree.
  • On the services and links tab of your myNortheastern portal, run a Degree Audit using the “Explore Options” feature to determine the remaining requirements.
    • Refer to tuition costs on the Student Financial Services website
  • Talk with business majors who are currently in the D’Amore-McKim School of Business!

Step Two: Complete the Change of Major Request Form

Once you’re sure you want to transfer into a BSBA program or combined Business Administration major, you’ll need to complete the Change of Major Request Form.

Once your change of major is processed, you will meet with your assigned academic advisor to complete your academic plan. 

Completing the form by the priority deadline ensures that a student’s request will be reviewed before registration begins. If the process is completed after the priority deadline, we will review the student request at the end of the semester.

Please note: After completing the Change of Major Request form, a D’Amore-McKim Academic Advisor will reach out to you to schedule a meeting before your request is processed, if needed.
