When students begin to express interest in a certain major, usually during their sophomore year, they are encouraged to meet with faculty members/chairperson from that department to discuss about their preferred major.

Once they meet with the department and decide on their major, the students should meet with their Academic Advisor to discuss remaining general requirements and request a Major Declaration form. They must obtain signatures from the academic advisor for the new major, the chairperson of the department, and the current academic advisor.

Academic Advising Office will bring the completed Major Declaration form to the Registrar’s Office. Once the Registrar’s Office has entered the information into their database, they “date-stamp” the Major Declaration form. The academic file is then sent to the new major advisor to track degree progress of the students until graduation.
