Number of majors students can attempt at Huntington Junior College

Students can change majors during their first 48 attempted hours at the college. After attempting 48 hours, students may change majors one time after receiving financial aid counseling to ensure the change does not create an unnecessary financial burden on the student. If they have already changed majors after attempting 48 hours, they must complete one of the degrees in which they have previously been enrolled.

As a graduate, a student may add one additional major after receiving financial and academic counseling. If the second degree does not provide an economic benefit to the student, HJC retains the right to refuse enrollment until student has actively looked for work for six months while working with the Student Success Coordinator.

If a student is required to complete an externship/practicum or typing speed as part of the first degree, they must first complete the externship/practicum and typing speed prior to enrolling in a second major. (Effective 1/1/13)
