Hey Cougars,

A Major Change
Found something better?

What if I change my major?
Changing your major is a pretty common thing to do. Most students will change their major at least once while they’re at BYU. While it is normal, you should avoid changing your major too many times.

How do I change my major?
You may change or declare your major online via MyMAP. Go to “Plan Courses,” then click “Change Major” in the Toolbox.

When do I need to declare?
It is best to have a concrete idea by your sophomore year. This helps you avoid taking unnecessary classes and finish school earlier. You must declare your major by the time you have earned 60 BYU credit hours. You cannot change majors after 75 BYU credit hours (excluding language exam credits).
