An online application for admission form is available. If you choose to submit that form, you will authorise the department to complete a Declaration/Change of Academic Programme form and send it to the Registrar's Office on your behalf.
There is no deadline for application but we we strongly recommend that students apply to declare their majors no later than May 31 in any year so that your major is on record at the Registrar's Office before Fall registration starts. It generally takes about two weeks to process an application though it can be slower at some times of the year. We will notify you by email/mail when we have processed your application.
Students who do not declare their major by May 31 may not be eligible for departmental scholarship or other award nominations.
