First-year applicants may submit a request to change their major or their intended school or college before the designated admission plan deadline. Deadlines for applicants to request an academic program change are as follows:

  •  Early Decision I: November 17
  • Early Action: December 1
  • Early Decision II: January 19
  • Regular Decision: February 16

First-year admitted students may not submit a request to change their intended school or college until after the first day of classes at the University of Miami. Admitted students may, however, submit a request to change their major within the school or college to which they have been admitted. Note that requests to change a student’s intended school or college are not guaranteed to be approved. (e.g., Several programs may have waiting lists for current UM students, including but not limited to Neuroscience and Traditional B.S.N. In addition, current UM students may not transfer into the Miami Herbert Business School until they have satisfied the math requirement and earned a minimum UM GPA.  Still other programs, such as the Frost School of Music and Theatre Arts B.F.A., may require auditions and admission for current UM students is highly selective.)
