Dual Majors

OCtech students have the option to declare a dual major in a related program if they meet the admission requirements for the academic programs being requested as dual majors. Admission requirements for a dual major may require proof of high school graduation or GED and/or qualifying test scores on the SAT, ACT, or OCtech’s placement test. Dual majors are permissible in more than one academic division when the student meets admission requirements for each academic program, and when the programs are related and deemed complementary. To declare a dual major, a student must complete a “Dual Major Request Form,” and submit it to the appropriate Division Dean(s) for approval. The Vice President of Academic Affairs must also approve the request prior to its submission to the Registrar’s Office. Student major updates submitted prior to or during drop/add week of the current semester are effective in the current semester. Student major updates submitted after drop/add period are effective in the next semester. Students must achieve a minimum 2.0 grade point average to graduate from any academic program at OCtech, including a dual major.
