Quick Links Major/minor forms Supplemental graduation requirement worksheet Colgate catalogue Members of the Class of 2017 are required to file a completed, signed Declaration of Major form with the registrar’s office by March 6, 2015.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure the department chair/program director has adequate time to review and sign the form before the deadline (typically a full week).
Members of the Class of 2017 who fail to submit a Declaration of Major form will be placed on a major declaration hold and will not be allowed to register for fall 2015 courses. Sophomores who submit declaration forms after the March 6 deadline but before the week of registration will forfeit their assigned registration time and be reassigned a registration time after all other declared sophomores register.
Please select an academic adviser from the faculty members in your chosen department or program, and then make an appointment with him/her to discuss appropriate courses and complete your declaration form. You should print a copy of your transcript from the portal (Banner Self-Service) to assist you and your adviser when completing the declaration form. You may also come to the registrar’s office (with your Colgate ID) and request an unofficial copy of your transcript.
