A student may change curriculum or field of study of specialization only with the approval of the chair of the department the student wishes to enter. Change notifications are also sent to the chair of the student's prior program. The student’s grade point average and the reasons for change will be assessed by the chair of the department into which the student is transferring.
Students can request changes to a major, concentration or minor online by clicking on the eWarrior tab in the myESU portal.Instructions on how to use the new requests system can also be found in the eWarriors tab in the myESU portal. Changes to major/minors/concentrations mean that the student is to follow the catalog requirements for that program based on the year of change. It is recommended that students request a program change prior to applying for graduation if applicable.
Specific professional programs, such as nursing and medical technology, are limited in the number of students who can be accommodated. Students planning to enter these fields should contact the appropriate department.
Simultaneous Dual Degrees
Students wishing to earn dual degrees (both a B.S. and a B.A.) must earn a minimum of 150 credit hours while completing all requirements for multiple majors and the general education competencies.
Students meeting all of the requirements of two majors with less than 150 credit hours can obtain a multiple major designation. In the case of a double major, if the two majors involve multiple degree designations (e.g., B.A. in English and B.S. in Psychology), the student will have the option to select only one degree designation that appears on the transcript and diploma.
A student who is already the recipient of a baccalaureate degree (either from East Stroudsburg University or from a different regionally accredited university) who wishes to pursue an additional undergraduate field will be required to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours at East Stroudsburg University including the requirements for the major. The program of study for the additional degree is to be approved by the appropriate department chair and appropriate academic dean.
