If you are undecided, there are two ways to choose a major. First, select courses, whenever possible, that allow you to explore different areas that hold some interest for you. This will allow you to assess your interest in a field at the college level. If you are not sure about your interests, make sure you select courses from a variety of areas and you may discover an new interest. Second, visit Career Services. They can help you explore your interests using career and interest exploration software, as well as provide an opportunity to talk to a career counselor.
Changing a major at the University of Hartford is typically very easy, with some exceptions. Every college has an academic service office that can give you a change of major form that requires several signatures. As long as you are in good academic standing, moving among majors and colleges only requires completing the change of major form. Two colleges require more: The Hartt School requires an audition and the Hartford Art School requires the submission of a portfolio. Visit the academic service office of either of those colleges to find out what is required for an audition or portfolio.
Final grades are placed in our University Banner System usually within 48 hours after each exam.
