Double Major

Double Major in Humanities or FHSS
Double Major in Another College

The Process

  1. Fill out this petition form and meet with your primary major academic advisor.
    • Discuss reasons for the secondary major (how this will benefit you and help you reach your goals).
  2. The next step in the process is to complete all the paperwork. Once that is complete, you will drop off the form (or email it) to the LAAC front desk. You will not have to meet with your second major advisor.
    • In order for the petition to be reviewed, students must complete the graduation plan, Statement of Intent, credit evaluation and commit to graduate as planned.
    • The secondary advisor will review your graduation plan, check for accuracy, and then either deny or approve the secondary major petition.
  3. Because both majors are in our colleges, your form will go through the entire approval process within the LAAC office.
    • They will either approve or deny the petition.
      • If denied, your advisor may discuss other options to obtain your goals or corrections to your graduation plan.
      • If approved, you will be notified through Y-message and you may pick up your graduation plan from our office. You will see the double major added to your MyMap.

The Process

  1. Fill out this petition form and meet with your primary major academic advisor.
    • Discuss reasons for the secondary major (how this will benefit you and help you reach your goals).
  2. Once the paperwork is complete, and you have met with your primary advisor, set-up a meeting with the college advisement center of the proposed secondary major.
    • In order for the petition to be reviewed, you must complete the graduation plan, Statement of Intent, credit evaluation and commit to graduate as planned.
    • The secondary advisor will review your graduation plan, check for accuracy, and then either deny or approve the secondary major petition.
  3. Once the secondary advisor approves the second major, they will notify you to pick up your petition in their office to take it to your primary major advisement center. You will not need to make another appointment. Simply drop-off your form (or email it) to the front desk.
  4. The primary major advisement center will review your graduation plan and the second major advisor recommendations.
  5. They will either approve or deny the petition.
    • If denied, your advisor may discuss other options to obtain your goals.
    • If approved, you will be notified through Y-message and you can pick up your graduation plan from your primary advisement center. You will see the double major added to your MyMap.

Some majors (ie. French, Spanish, etc.) need department permission before the double major is approved.
