BIS Change of Major Procedure

Change of Major Procedure

The following steps are required for students to change their major to the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies. The procedure ensures the student has an understanding of the Interdisciplinary degree and is aware of requirements necessary to complete the BIS.

1. Inquiring students begin by completing the BIS Cyber Workshop. The online workshop provides an overview of the BIS and allows the student to select an area of               emphasis. 

2. Upon completion, the workshop generates an email to BIS advisors. Advisors prepare a summary of remaining degree requirements/tentative degree program. This information is forwarded to the student.

3. Upon review of the advising summary, students interested in pursuing the BIS will contact the advisor to ask questions about the tentative degree program and set-up an initial advising session.

4. In the advising session, the student and advisor will review degree requirements and remaining course work. At this time, the student will complete a Change of Major form and the advisor will lift the advising hold.

 5. The advisor and Interdisciplinary Studies Department Head sign the Change of Major form. The completed form is submitted to AARC to update the student record (Banner).
