It’s Major Declaration Time!
Please remind your students that the Major Declaration deadline for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in good academic standing will be Friday February 13 by 5:00 pm. Students who have not yet declared their majors can complete the online major declaration form at: http://www.advising.appstate.edu. It is quick and easy! Students who declare by the deadline will be able to seek academic advising for summer and fall classes from their major departments or Colleges.
Students are eligible to declare their majors if they have earned 30 semester hours, have credit for English 1000 (Expository Writing) or its equivalent, have credit for or are currently enrolled in First Year Seminar (UCO 1200), and have a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. Of course, some departments such as Music, Art, Athletic Training, Nursing, and Communication-Electronic Media/Broadcasting require official admittance before students can declare their majors. Please encourage your students to contact their UC advisors for assistance.
Juniors (60 or more earned hours) and Seniors (90 or more earned hours) who have been at Appalachian for at least one semester but have not yet declared their majors are REQUIRED to do so by the February 13 deadline, if eligible. Juniors and Seniors who do not declare their majors by the deadline will be required to meet with their UC advisors before being allowed to register for fall classes. We want to ensure that our students (especially Juniors and Seniors) stay on track for graduation!
