Has anyone tried to change their major?

Hello, I am an international student beginning my studies this fall.
I just requested my major change from Undeclared/Business (Common App) to International Business.
I just wanted to know if those who requested the major change were granted to do so.
I am really hoping to be able to change my major.

Thanks to all in advance!

    yep I changed from Undeclared to Economics and the process was quick and painless, so no worries

    Some majors are harder to change into than others. International business is really competitive.
    Check out the "What can I do please help!!" thread if you haven't already. There's some helpful information there.

    Changed from human services to behavioral neuroscience. Give good reasons for wanting to change and maybe even try doing it over the phone. I attempted it twice through the portal with no success until I finally spoke to them over the phone about it and they switched me.

    But that (above) is from Bouve TO Science. Going from Science to a major in Bouve would likely be much harder. The old CAS colleges will take any internal transfer, so long as you can graduate on time.
