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 major on the Columbia campus, you must apply to change your major to the Arnold School of Public Health.

If you need assistance with academic plans, you should meet with an Exploratory Advisor in the University Advising Center located in Close-Hipp. Suite 381. 


Students must attend a New Major Information Session prior to applying to the Arnold School of Public Health. New Major Information Sessions are offered throughout the Fall 2022 semester. 

Sessions are held virtually via Blackboard.
