Ready to Declare Your Major?

We are temporarily pausing major declarations until the beginning of Block 1 in fall 2023. If you have an urgent need to declare your major due to immigration issues, please contact our chair, Christina Rader.


In the fall, please book an appointment with the Economics and Business Paraprofessional; at your appointment, you will be assigned an advisor and assisted in completing the major declaration form. When you book your appointment, please indicate the major you intend to declare in the notes section.

Please complete the tasks below prior to your appointment for the best possible outcome:

  • Determine the exact number of General Education requirements you have completed/still need to complete. Bring this to your meeting.
  • Review your anticipated major’s list of requirements on the Catalog of Courses site.
  • Based on the major requirements, create a list of courses you have taken that will satisfy your anticipated major’s requirements. Bring this to your meeting.

At the meeting, you will complete the registrar’s Major Declaration Form together. You can prefill the form before the meeting, but please do not submit the form until you have had your meeting. Please see our examples of all four possible major declarations for reference.

We look forward to welcoming you into the department!
