Change of Major



If you missed the deadline to apply as a new COMS major for Fall, 2014, you will have to wait until the next open period.  Please fill out a Notification to Receive an Applicationform (here or in NH 330) and turn it into the COMS department office.

Our Application process is generally in early March and early October of each year.  We can’t guarantee that we will have an application process every semester.

COMS is an impacted major.  We are sorry we cannot accommodate you at this time.  We will keep your form on file until we can open the major again.
