Changing Major

Change of Major

If you want to change your major, you need to come to the International Student Program to meet with the consular and fill in the Request for Change of Major.  The changes must be reported to SEVIS by  International Student Program. Failure to report academic program changes including a change of major can put a student’s immigration status at risk. When the form is received and verified, an updated I-20 will be processed and printed to reflect new major. 

Change of Major Steps:

  1.  Meet with a counselor to  create a new education plan
  2. Submit the completed change of major form
  3. Pick up updated I-20 from International Student Program 
Your program timeline at San Jose City College is generally about 3 years. Please check for your program end date on your I-20. When you changed your major your I-20 duration will be extended accordingly to the new major.
