What You’ll Need

You will also need to decide which GSS concentration you plan on following. You can get information about the four concentrations, including relevant course descriptions, at

After you submit your online request form, the change will be processed and applied to your UO Degree Guide. This can take 2-3 weeks before the change is finalized, so we recommend that you check your UO Degree Guide to verify the update to your major.
