Arnold School of Public Health

Change of Major

Are you a current student at USC who would like to join the Arnold School? We can help!

If you are currently enrolled in another college or school on the Columbia campus, you must apply to change your major to the Arnold School of Public Health.

If you need assistance making immediate academic plans meet with an Exploratory Advisor in the University Advising Center located in the Close-Hipp Building. 


Students must attend a New Major Information Session prior to applying. Major Sessions are offered throughout the Fall 2021 semester. 

Sessions are held virtually via Blackboard.
