Changing Your Major

Is your major correct in ATHENA?

To meet with an orientation advisor specializing in your field of study, make sure your major is correct in Athena. To check or change your major:

  • In Athena > Student  > Student & Registration > My Programs
  • Add the new major first then delete the old major.
    • Choose the “Intended” version of a major if one is listed.  If a major has this option, it requires application. 
      • If a major has the "Intended" option and you accidentally select the option without "Intended," cancel the request then add the "Intended" major.
      • Declare "intended" for all Terry College and Grady College majors.
  • It is OK to be Unspecified! The Exploratory Center advises Unspecified students.

IMPORTANT: If you change your major after you are contacted to schedule advising, email Mary Herman to make sure you are scheduled with the advisor for your new major.
