When to declare
All undergraduates must declare a major by the time they reach junior standing, or 90 credits. Undeclared students with junior standing will be able to register only after officially declaring their major.
How to declare
Changing your major
You may change your major at any time by visiting the new department and resubmitting the Major Declaration Form according to the guidelines above.
Post baccalaureate students
Students who have already earned a post baccalaureate degree must declare a major after being admitted to the University as a post baccalaureate student. Financial Aid cannot be awarded to a post baccalaureate student prior to the major declaration being posted. Contact the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office for additional information.
Former students returning
Former Eastern Washington University students who were required to submit a Former Student Returning Application to the Admissions Office must declare their intended major prior to earning 90 credits even if they had previously declared a major.
