Declaring a major, minor, or certificate in the College of Business

Undergraduate students who wish to make any changes to their program of study (add or remove majors, minors, or certificates) should complete the undergraduate major/minor change forms and have them signed by an academic advisor.


Declaring a Business Major

Admission to FAU does not guarantee admission to any specific major. All prospective students for traditional (non-online) business majors are admitted to FAU as “Pre-Business.” Prospective online students are admitted as "Pre-Business Online." 

Pre-business students who have completed the requirements to declare should schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to complete the necessary paperwork.

Non-business majors who are considering a change to business should make an appointment with a business advisor to discuss.

  4. If you are not a College of Business major, take the signed paperwork to your main advisor for their approval.
