Declaring a Major

Declaration of Major/Minor/Concentration

Traditional undergraduate students may enroll at George Fox University with or without a specific major in mind. However, students must formally declare their major with the registrar. A first-year traditional undergraduate student should declare his or her major by the beginning of the second semester. The process is the same for the declaration or change of a minor or concentration.

Some departments have an application and screening process for admission to a major. In those cases, the declaration of major form is considered to be a statement of intent, and the process is complete only when the department admits the student to the major. Admission to the university does not imply automatic admission to a major. Admission to a major is normally accomplished no later than the end of the junior year, or before the completion of 90 credits.
