Project #136

Build an Automated / Online Major Change Mechanism


The primary goal of the Online Major Change Mechanism project was to build a real-time, accurate, Banner
integrated solution that displays a student’s current major, degree program, and prompts them to verify/or change their major each term.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

  • Built a technical solution for students to submit a major/degree change in real-time using Banner self service (Banweb). This outcome was achieved when students were able to log into Banweb, submit a change of major and immediately see information related to their new current major (including being able to register for major-restricted courses).

  • Leveraged technology to enforce the practice of requiring students each term who meet the requirements to declare a major using the online process.

PROJECT IMPACT

The online / automated major change mechanism is used to update student majors in real time to ensure that students stay on track with their chosen course of study and to make sure that the declaration requirements, as set forth in PSU policy, are complied with.

In first seven days after the launch of an automated online major change mechanism, 3,735 majors were changed and 15,855 were confirmed, representing a significant proportion of the undergraduates at PSU.
