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 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
Students pursuing a self-designed major must submit an application form (available in PDF and Word format) along with their major card. Detailed instructions are included on the form.
