Current Students at UMD: Change of Major

If you are a student already enrolled at the University of Maryland, you must contact your new department in order to change your major.

Students interested in changing their major to Kinesiology need to go online to sign up for a change of major workshop.

Please contact a KNES advisor by email to ensure that we contact you as soon as we open Change of Major workshops.

After attending change of major workshop all students are required to attend an Academic Plan Workshop to develop a plan.Your major will only be changed after your academic plan has been approved.

Non-Kinesiology students who attempted any Kinesiology benchmark courses two times and did not recieve the required grade, will not be able to transfer into the major.
