Choose Your Major Wisely

We encourage you to apply for the major in which you intend to earn a degree. Change of major is prohibited during the application and admission review process. After you are admitted, the change of major is never guaranteed and is by petition only. After the census date (after the 20th day of instruction) change of major petitions would be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar.   We encourage students to enter an alternate major on your application to Fresno State. Select your alternate major wisely. We will only admit to alternate majors if there is additional capacity for returning student enrollment in those majors.
