A student may change his/her major provided that he/she meets the following requirements:
The student must apply to the Admission and Registration Unit within the period specified in the academic calendar.
The student must meet the admission requirements of the new major or college.
In no case may Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) policies and procedures substitute for admissions requirements.
The student should not have been previously dismissed from the department/college that he/she wished to transfer for.
When a student changes to a new major or college, he/she may select courses which he/she had taken beforehand and passed in order to be transferred, provided these courses are part of the student’s new Study Plan. The grades of these transferred credits are taken into account when the student’s CGPA is calculated.
A student is entitled to two times change of major or college throughout his/her enrolment at AFU.
Where a student changes program, all financial obligations of that student will remain in the student’s account history.
The new program regulations including fees shall be applicable.
