Major Declarations

All majors, minors, and specializations (including concentrations and teacher certifications) must be officially declared to appear on a student’s record. To declare one of these options, students should go to the Registrar’s Office to request their Major Card. The card should be taken to the appropriate department chair or program director to obtain approval and be assigned an academic advisor. The card is then returned to the Registrar’s Office and the student’s degree audit will be updated accordingly.

Similarly, any majors, minors, or specializations no longer being pursued must be officially dropped from their Major Card by following the same steps described above.

Part-time students should contact the Office of Continuing Education and Graduate Studies to make these changes.
