Change of Degree Application (CODA)

The Change of Degree Application (CODA) is NC State's centralized resource for students to apply to add or change majors. Program administrators with CODA access can review the application roster, endorse students, and submit an application on a student's behalf. Once students are admitted, program staff can add the academic advisor assignment through the CODA roster.

The CODA website houses information and tools for students to research majors and a link to the CODA.
