Declare a major

Begin the paperwork in the Registrar’s office or in the Student Services suite, located on the second floor of the Cailloux Campus Activity Center.

NOTE: Education majors and Nursing majors should “declare” with other students but they are not accepted into the program until after the sophomore year following a separate application process. Declaration of major does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
