Declare Your Major

Ready to declare? Why is it important and how do you declare a major?



Reasons to Declare your Major

  • Declaring a major establishes a catalog year, which means the set of major requirements you're working on will not change for 5 years
  • Once you've declared a major, you've established the first piece of eligibility for departmental and college specific scholarships
  • Your major advisor will be able to assist you with graduation, new courses, scholarships, department involvement, and more
  • You'll avoid receiving a MAP Undeclared hold, which is placed for students who have earned 60+ credits and are undeclared/exploring
  • You do have to declare in order to graduate! (Pre-Majors must declare a full major.)
