Declaration of Major

Students are admitted with their "Major", "Minor", or "Certificate" of interest noted for advising purposes. All students are required to have an official major and faculty advisor on file with the Registrar’s Office by the time they have a total of 45 credits earned. Some majors require additional entrance requirements or addition of an area of emphasis, thus a student must complete the program admit process requirements. These students will be added as Pre-Majors to their area of study. A "Major", "Minor", or "Certificate" is not fully valid until the student is also assigned a faculty advisor. Students should follow the departmental directives for declaring a major/advisor assignment using the resources found in departmental web pages. Students are encouraged to discuss a major with faculty representatives as early as possible in their undergraduate career. The declaration of major/minor/certificate form is available online at
