How to Declare: Majors, Minors and Notations

Main content start

The process of declaring a major varies by department. For many majors, you will be asked to fill out a Program Sheet that charts the courses you will take to complete the major. You then have that program sheet approved by your faculty Major Advisor in a meeting, and then finalize your declaration in Axess.

You can find general advice about declaring here in the Advising Student Handbook. Some departments have alternative—or additional—requirements for declaration; for example, they may have you write a reflective essay, or meet with a peer advisor. Select a tile below to see the specific declaration process for that major, and be aware: selecting a major in Axess is often the smallest and least important step in this process!
