How Do I Declare or Change my Major? Minor? Certificate
Major - The declaration of a major is made through the department offering the major. To declare or change a major, you must complete a Declaration of Curriculum form and submit the form to the department of the major you are declaring. The department will assign an academic advisor to you at this time. A major will be reflected on a degree audit and transcript after the form has been processed by both the department and the Office of the Registrar.
Minor - The declaration of a minor is also completed through the Declaration of Curriculum form. If the Declaration of Curriculum form is being used for the declaration of a minor only, no advisor or department signatures are needed and the form can be taken directly to the Office of the Registrar for processing. A minor will be reflected on a degree audit and transcript once the declaration form has been filed with the Office of the Registrar.
Certificate - Students interested in a certificate should consult with the supervising department of the certificate or the Office of the Registrar.
