When do I declare a major?

Students normally declare their major during the second semester of their sophomore year. This gives you plenty of time to explore the curriculum and be in conversation with your advisor about your interests and options. It is possible to declare a major before the second semester of the sophomore year in most departments and programs; given high numbers of majors and specific prerequisites, economics and psychology do not allow major declaration before second semester of the sophomore year. You cannot register for the fall semester of the junior year without declaring a major.
