Graduate Admissions

Degree Change

Information about changing your graduate program of study

If you are currently pursuing a graduate degree at Mississippi College and would like to change your major/degree you must submit a new graduate school admissions application.

Students should not register for classes until the degree change request is processed. For example, if you are registered for the fall term and desired to change your major, you would submit a new application for the spring term. Although you may be able to register, DO NOT register for the spring term until your degree change request is processed.

A degree or major cannot be updated during a semester, registering will prevent the change of major from being processed.
