I picked the wrong major

So i had to activate my ASUrite account and i noticed that i picked the wrong major. There was a "change your major" category so i decided to click it to try and change it. The school still hasn't received my official transcripts and my money for the application fee, so will they change my major with no problem?

It says that i have "requested a change" and that it'll change within two business days. So will it change with no problem?

    When you apply, ASU typically asks for more than one major, just in case you don't get into a certain program. While ASU as a university may be easy to get into, there are a lot of programs within ASU that require reasonably difficult admission material (GPA, SATs, etc.).
    If you don't meet the requirements for your first choice major, they put you in your second choice, assuming you meet the requirements for that program.

    If you do meet the requirements, the major change should go through seamlessly. They're just having an advisor in that department look at your info to make sure you're good to go. I would imagine that if you meet the requirements, the whole transition should go off without a hitch.
