Declaration of Major
Students should declare a major no later than the end of the first semester of the junior year (sometime between the completion of 45 and 60 credit hours).
Formal major declaration by students:
- Improves the accuracy and completeness of undergraduate major records
- Facilitates assignment of undergraduate majors to departmental advisors
- Encourages timely contact between students and major departments
- Makes the declaration of a major a more formal and significant engagement between the student and the department
Students may pick up a Declaration of Major form in the College Student Academic Services office. (Some departments also have the forms.) Students should complete the form and turn it in to the department in which they wish to major. Once the department has endorsed the Declaration of Major, it must be returned to the College Student Academic Services office in 109 Strong Hall.
