A student may change curriculum or field of specialization only with the approval of the student's adviser and the director of the curriculum or the chair of the department the student wishes to enter. The student's quality point average and the reasons for change will be assessed by the chair of the department into which the student is transferring.
Changes in program should be requested only after careful counseling and planning. All such changes require the completion of a Change of Major Card that is available at the Student Enrollment Center.
Specific professional programs, such as nursing, medical technology, are limited in the number of students who can be accommodated. Students planning to enter these fields should contact the appropriate department.
Students who complete the requirements of two or more majors in combinations of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science areas will have the choice of designating either B.A. or B.S. as their primary degree. Students with dual degrees will receive a diploma for each degree conferred. The permanent record (transcript) will indicate both degrees.
A student who is already the recipient of a baccalaureate degree (from East Stroudsburg University or elsewhere) who wishes to pursue an additional undergraduate field will be required to complete a minimum of thirty-two semester hours at East Stroudsburg University including the requirements for the major. The program of study for the additional degree is to be approved by the appropriate department chair and appropriate academic dean.
