How do I officially declare my major as biology, and why is it important to do it sooner rather than later?

Posted at 12:08 p.m. Jan. 24, 2013,

To declare your major, please contact the Registrar’s Office.

Later, if you want to change your major just repeat the process.

Officially declaring your major provides you with very important benefits–namely, you will automatically receive email messages alerting you to changes in course offerings, registration deadlines, biologically-related employment opportunities, and the like. Such emails are sent to all students whose departmental code is 120. Even if you are unsure of your major, being listed as a 120 student will permit you receive Biology Department news and thus test-drive the biology major for awhile.
