Change of Graduate Program

Change of Graduate Program (between departments)

A change from a degree in one graduate program/department to a degree in another program/department requires the approval of the Graduate Program Director or Department Head of both the old and the new programs and the Graduate School. http://graduateschool.vt.edu/content/dam/graduateschool_vt_edu/GAAPforms/Change_of_Graduate_Program.pdf

Students wishing to change programs should consult with the department they wish to enter to determine the likelihood of acceptance prior to beginning this process. The department the student wishes to enter may see the original application materials by making a request to the Graduate School and may request additional materials from the student.
