If you wish to change your major to Intended Nursing, and your overall cumulative GPA is 3.0 or higher, we invite you to complete our Major Change Request form.
Please note that you should have an overall cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher to change your major to intended nursing.
Students who do not currently have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA should work with their current advisor or the Exploratory & Pre-Professional Advising Center (EPAC) to identify a more appropriate major.
Students interested in health related fields may want to consider majoring in Public Health, Psychology, Exercise Science or Social Science Interdisciplinary- Health and Human Services. Please view list of UB majors in the Undergraduate Degree & Course Catalog.
Start by visiting the Major Transitions website and utilize the many resources (i.e. YouTube videos and alternative major brochures) and additional links found on that site.
Advisors in the Exploratory & Pre-professional Advising Center (EPAC) work with students in transition who are undecided about a new major (and are not a part of one of the populations listed below*) and advising for all other majors is offered through a network of offices*. You should contact the appropriate office as soon as possible to get help with revising your academic plan.
* Note: If you are a member of ACE, Acker, Athletics, EOP or Honors, it is important that you contact your academic advising office directly for further assistance and support.
Career counselors, and the many resources this office provides, can help you think in new ways about choosing a major/career that is right for you.
