Declaring A College Degree Program

Students choose a degree program depending upon their career goals. Many freshmen are initially undecided about which program to choose. Students receiving federal and/or state financial aid must declare their intent to work toward a four-year degree at their initial registration. They may choose their program at a later date.

Programs are generally chosen by the end of the third semester. Choosing a program within the first three semesters helps the student plan the rest of his or her academic career so that a degree may be earned in a timely manner.

Students declare a degree by submitting a form to the Registrar’s Office. Students can change their degree by submitting a new form.
