Student Handbook – Making the Grade
Declaring a major or minor
To declare or change a major or minor, inform the registrar’s office in person in Ad 06. You may want to discuss your decision with your academic adviser before you do so. After declaring, meet with your new adviser to set up a plan of study for your new major or minor.
Students are expected to pay all amounts due to the college before graduation. GC will not release diplomas to any student with an outstanding balance. Students will be allowed to participate in graduation ceremonies if academic requirements are met, but if there is an unpaid balance in their account they will only receive a diploma cover until the balance is paid in full. This policy applies to all students with outstanding account balances, no matter how small.
Students who want an official transcript of their records should file a written and signed request in the registrar’s office. Students are entitled to transcripts only if they have settled all financial obligations with Goshen College. One transcript is free; additional transcripts are $4 each. This fee must be paid before the transcript is issued.
