A quick guide on how to use Change/Declare major.

First-Time Freshmen
Students who enter the University as first-time freshmen are required to complete the online Declaration of Major form in the second semester of their freshmen year.

Transfer Students
Transfer students must complete the online Declaration of Major form in their first semester of enrollment.

Online Degree-Completion Students
Students who wish to complete their degree online must declare an online degree-completion (ODC) major. Courses in ODC majors will be reserved for ODC students, and students will get a prerequisite test score error if they try to register for an ODC online course without having declared an online degree-completion major (online courses that are not a part of an ODC program will not have this restriction). On the Declaration of Major page, the ODC program is listed under the main campus program. In addition to the individual program requirements, students must have completed the University College Core Curriculum or be dual enrolled with a community college in order to be accepted to an online degree-completion major. The new process for online courses and the list of online degree-completion majors can be found at

Non-Degree Seeking Students
Non-degree seeking students cannot declare a major until their status is changed to degree seeking.

Graduate Students
Graduate students cannot use this form. Graduate students must contact the Graduate School.

Degree Seeking Students
All degree seeking students are required to complete the online Declaration of Major form prior to earning 60 credit hours. Students who have not will be blocked from registering from classes.
