Change of Primary or Secondary Major: A student wishing to enter a second major or change majors must consult the chairperson of the department or director of the school (or their designees) offering the major. Program Specific Admission Criteria: Illinois State University regulates admission to designated programs when the number of stu- dents seeking admission exceeds the available educational resources of the department or school. Students may be required to meet sup- plementary selection criteria based on the most current undergraduate catalog.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
