Appeal Form for Add/Drop/Withdraw/Grade Option

Use this form to appeal and request an exception to the deadline for an add, drop, withdraw, or change in credit or grading option. Please be sure to read the policy and procedure first (PDF).

Change of Program Form

Use this form if you are switching from another school or college at UWM to the College of Letters & Science. For example, if you are switching from a business major, which is in the Lubar School of Business, to an economics major, which is in the College of Letters & Science, use this form.

Intended Major Form

Use this form if you are currently undecided and wish to indicate your intent to declare an Letters & Science major. As well, use this form if you would like to change your intended major within the College of Letters & Science. For example, if you are changing from an English major to a Communication major, both of which are in the College of Letters & Science, use this form. NOTE: When switching majors, you must formally declare that change within the corresponding L&S Department. Consult the Department for their particular declaration of major procedure.

Registration Change Form

Use this form to add, drop, swap, or change credits or grading options after published deadlines or to obtain permission to override prerequisites or closed courses. Prior to published deadlines, you may make these changes yourself in your PAWS account.
