Declaring Your Major

The Degree Audit Report (DARS) is used to plan coursework and stay on track with the requirements for completion of a degree.  To be able to use the report, you need to declare your area(s) of study.

Your major status is listed as undeclared or as an "intended" area of interest until you submit a Declaration form and are accepted into a major. You must declare a major by the time you complete 60 degree credits. You may change, add or drop by filing another declaration form.

Once you have completed the declaration form, you should take the form to the appropriate department.  Be sure and check your Student Center on SOLAR to verify that your major has been updated. 

You may also declare a minor, certificate and/or concentrations using the Declaration form.


For more information about our academic programs, including specific requirements for being accepted into the major, please see our Programs.
