Declaring your Major

If you have questions about any of the four majors or need more information before making your decision, please contact the appropriate Faculty Advisor.

If you are ready to declare your major, come to one of Carie's Drop In times between now and the end of W20 semester to complete the paperwork.

Carie's Drop In times for this semester are Wednesdays from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm and Thursdays from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Learning Services - Library

Our Library's Learning Services offers appointments and support for students looking to improve their skills in time management, effective studying, writing a thesis or major paper or capstone project. The services are free and the feedback you'll receive could make a huge difference.

Applying to Graduate

For those of you who are going to complete your courses in April, you need to apply to graduate by February 14th, 2020 to avoid a late penalty. You would have already received an email from the Registrar’s Office with instructions if you will complete 20.00 credits this semester. Once you apply to graduate, no news is good news. Once I receive applications to graduate, I will contact you only if I see a problem or require more information from you.

Course Selection Tip/ Full Courses

WHAT IF A COURSE IS FULL/I DON’T HAVE THE PREREQUISITE?

Note that some courses have rolling enrollment. This means they are releasing spots slowly over the course selection period. Check WebAdvisor often to see if new spots have been released in a course you are interested in.
