Who is this for: Boston based undergraduates looking to switch into one of D'Amore-McKim's combined majors, BSBA, or BSIB.

Questions/concerns: Please email Transfer Services at DMSBTransferServices@northeastern.edu.

Step 1: 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 BS in International Business (or any of our 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. Refer to tuition costs on the Student Financial Services website.
  • On the “Resources” tab of your Student Hub, run a Degree Audit using the “Run a Different Program” feature to determine the remaining requirements.
  • Talk with business majors who are currently in the D'Amore-McKim School of Business!

Step 2: Complete the Change of Major Request Form

Once you're sure you want to transfer into a Business program, you'll need to complete the Change of Major Request Form.

Please note: At this time, a meeting is not required as part of the Change of Major Process. Upon completion of the application, you will receive a confirmation email from our office.

Once your Change of Major application is processed, you will meet with your newly assigned D'Amore-McKim Academic Advisor to complete your academic plan.

Combined Business Majors

Change of Major requirements may vary based on the selected combined major. You must meet the entrance criteria for both D'Amore-McKim and the college that houses the other half of your combined major.


  • If you are currently on a leave of absence, you must contact DMSB Transfer Services to schedule a meeting before the end of the semester for your application to be considered. 
  • If you are applying for a combined major, please only apply to the college you would like to be housed in. If you decide you would rather be housed in another college, please email DMSB Transfer Services so we can delete your application.
