Non-degree seeking students must submit a "Change of Status" form and official transcripts from all high schools and colleges attended to the Office of the Registrar in order to become degree-seeking. Non-degree seeking students are ineligible for financial aid.
The student obtains a Change of Status form from the Registrar's Office, secures the signature of the department chair/director (or dean) of the program being declared, and returns the form to the Registrar's Office for processing. The student must also request official transcripts from all high schools and colleges attended be sent to the Registrar's Office.
The Change of Status cannot be processed until all official transcripts are received by the Registrar's Office.
The student must submit the completed form prior to the beginning of the 12th week of the semester if the change is to be made within the current semester. Unless granted a waiver by the department of the newly declared program, the student must meet all current program requirements for graduation.
