Changing Majors Once You Are Enrolled at URI
Due to limited space, entrance requirements and/or amount of interest in certain majors, you may be offered admission to URI but not to your first choice major. What does this mean for you? Can you switch majors once you are enrolled at URI? For the vast majority of majors, the answer to this question is a resounding “yes!”
You will receive guidance and support through University College, our academic advising college here at URI, and you will learn about the requirements for different majors. You may have to enroll in specific courses and earn a minimum grade point average in those courses in order to switch to the major you desire, but many, many URI students successfully change majors (sometimes multiple times!).
Several majors (Pharmacy, Nursing, and Kinesiology) do have much more limited access, so switching into one of these majors is highly unlikely. If you are interested in a career in the pharmaceutical industry, we encourage you to explore the variety of careers that are open in that field through other majors – our Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences or the Pharmaceutical Track in our Chemical Engineering major. We also offer a wide variety of other health and life science majors (i.e. Health Studies, Nutrition and Dietetics, Biomedical Engineering, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, and Microbiology to name a few) that may appeal to students who are not admitted to their first choice major selection of Pharmacy, Nursing, or Kinesiology.Changing Your Major Prior to Enrollment
