Declaring a major

Admitted Students for Fall 2021: You are invited to attend a special event on Thursday, May 6 at 6 p.m. about exploring your college major. Hosted by faculty and staff, this event will give you insight into what resources are available to you when trying to determine your area of study. Register today: Explore Your College Major

Most students declare a major and minor by their second year, and it usually doesn’t delay your academic progress if you remain undecided during your first year. If you select certain professional programs, such as nursing or education, your program could take a little longer because of the sequencing of course requirements.

Some students change their major later, and that’s OK, too. College is all about exploring the possibilities. If you switch majors, the courses you took as part of your original major may be counted toward a minor. Your advisor will guide you and help you stay on track to graduation.

Get ready for a bright
future
