The Change/Addition of Major Process

Declaring CCJS as a major is a two-step process.  The first step is attending a Change/Addition of Major workshop with CCJS Advising.  The second step is completing an Academic Plan with BSOS Advising.  Students must meet with CCJS Advising before completing an Academic Plan.  Please contact the CCJS Advising Office to schedule a Change/Addition of Major workshop.
