Changing your Major/Program

If you wish to transfer within doctoral programs at APUS, you are only permitted to do so during the first term of the program, upon review and approval of the Doctoral Admission’s Committee. You must submit a revised professional goal essay and assume tuition costs for any courses that must be taken in the new program. If you are on probation and/or carry incompletes, you may not transfer programs.
