For general information on selecting your major at the University of Florida, please review UF's Advising page on Choosing a Major.
Changing From a Non-business Major to a Business Major
In general, you may change to a business major if you meet the following criteria:
- 3.0 or better UF GPA with no tracking courses completed
- 2.0 or better UF GPA AND a 3.0 or better tracking GPA
- You will not exceed the maximum 130 credit hours allowed for the degree (excluding AP/IB/AICE/Dual Enrollment credit)
Transfer students who are admitted to UF as non-business majors are not eligible to change their major to business.
Changing From One Business Major to Another
Generally, you may change from one business major to another if you are on track and have not completed more than half of your business major courses.
Changing From Business to a Non-business Major
To change from a business major to a non-business major, contact an advisor in the appropriate college. If you are changing your major, but are still interested in pursuing a degree that is related to business, review the Other Majors to Consider handout. And remember, as a non-business major, you are eligible to pursue a minor in business administration or entrepreneurship.

Earn a Minor or Certificate
Earning a minor or certificate demonstrates that you have completed a significant body of work outside your major. In addition, a minor or certificate allows you to explore personal interests, satisfy your intellectual curiosity, and differentiate your program of study from those of your fellow students.
Guidelines for Earning a Minor
UF offers a wide array of minors and certificate programs. You can begin taking courses for your minor as early as your first semester, but you must complete 45 credit hours before applying for a minor. Business students who want to declare a minor should speak with a School of Business advisor in 233 Bryan Hall.
