Student Handbook 2016-2017

Change of Major (Program Transfer)

Students have the privilege of transferring from one program to another while enrolled in Georgia Northwestern Technical College. In the event a student declares a change of major, the student’s placement test scores and previously earned credits will be evaluated in terms of the new major. In some instances a change of major will result in additional general education course work. The student must meet admission requirements and any other qualifications for the new major. Students desiring to change their majors should complete a Change of Status form available in the office of student affairs. Students may change their major prior to the first day of the semester and no later than the last day of the designated drop/add period of the semester. Some programs may have waiting lists and may not be available for immediate entry.
