Change of Concentration or Major Online Form Requests

Active, degree-seeking graduate level students may change their concentration or major by submitting a Change of Concentration or Change of Major online form request through myWings. These requests will be reviewed by the Graduate School and then routed to the appropriate program director for approval. Using the steps below you will be able to access the Online Forms screens to review these requests.

  • Step One: Access the Online Forms

    When a student's Change of Concentration or Change of Major request is forwarded to you, you will receive an email communication.

    To access the online form requests:

    1. Log into myWings
    2. Click the Employee Resources tile
    3. Select the Employee Forms option
    4. Select the Banner Online Form Approvals option

    You will also notice an outstanding number on the My Actions tile in myWings. Clicking this tile will show Actions to be Completed which will include Change of Concentration and Change of Major requests.

  • Step Two: View the Request

    The default view for Online Form Approvals is Need Action, automatically displaying all requests that are currently awaiting your decision.

    Clicking the [number] in the Req column will open the Request Status Review screen. From this screen you will be able to view notes, if any have been added.

    Clicking Review in the Action column will open the form to view the request:

    • Personal Information - student that is requesting the change
    • Effective Term - term in which the change will take place
    • Current Program of Study - students current program information
    • Concentration or Major (dependent on form) - action(s) that the student is requesting
      • Add a Concentration/Major
      • Remove a Concentration/Major
      • Replace a Concentration/Major
    • Statement of Understanding - student has agreed to University regulation by agreeing to this
    • Graduate Program Director Information - current program director, and new program director if student is requesting major adjustment
  • Step Three: Make the Decision
    Once you have reviewed the request you will need to choose an Action. There are different options dependent on your approval role.
    • Change of Concentration
      • Approve - forwards the request back to the Graduate School for final processing
      • Deny - use if you do not approve of the change
      • Cancel - use if you need to cancel the request
    • Change of Major
      • Current Program Director Review
        • Approve - forwards to the new program director for review
        • Deny - use if you do not approve of the change
        • Cancel - use if you need to cancel the request
      • New Program Director Review
        • Admit (Waive All Requirement) - indicates you waive all admission requirements to the program and forwards the request back to the Graduate School for final processing
        • Deny - use if you do not approve of the change 

    If choosing a decision other than Approve/Admit, it is recommended to include notes in the Internal Notes or Communication Information sections. The student can not view either note section, but they will be used should a student contact us regarding the decision of their request.
