Even though you officially can change it with the Records department, it is always necessary to inform the Education office of these changes.

Switching Programs (e.g., from Secondary to Non-SATEP)
First, consult your advisor on the consequences of switching programs. Please provide a written request and be specific. Include: current program, new progra to switch to, and your current mailing address, phone number, and email. If the advisor approves your request, you will then receive a new acceptance letter and a new advising sheet. The advising sheet will give you the appropriate advisor contact information.
