Undergraduate Studies > Chemistry Major > Process for declaring a major in Chemistry

The process for declaring a major in chemistry is easy.  There are no prerequisites that need to be completed prior to declaring your major in chemistry.  There is no “applying” or “pre-declaring” to be a chemistry major.  There is no application period.  You can declare a major in chemistry at any time.

1.)   Pick up a Declaration of Major form (available at the Dean’s Office at Monroe Hall or outside room 404 in the Chemistry Building)

2.)  Review the courses that you still need to complete for the degree program you wish to pursue and come up with a plan of how to complete all the required courses.  Handouts are available outside room 404 in the Chemistry Building and here.

3.)  Make a list of any questions you may have.

4.)  See Cindy Knight in room 404 in the Chemistry Building and she will review your form and the courses you still need to take and answer any questions you may have. She will sign it and assign you an advisor. You do not need to make an appointment.  Just stop by her office and let her know you want to declare your major.
