How to Officially Declare Your Major

Beginning  January 9, 2017, initial major declaration will be done on the Student Portal site.

To do this:

Log into AppalNet.

Select the "Self-Service" tab.

Select the "Student"  tab.

Click on "Student Records".

Click on "Declare Your Major".

You will need to enter a phone number, your major and a minor if it is required for your major.

You can enter a second major, but keep in mind that you will need to complete that major or have it removed from your record at a later date.

You will be notified via email once your records have been processed.

After declaration, your records will be moved to your new College and Department and you will no longer have an assigned advisor in University College.  You may be able to find your new advisor in your DegreeWorks audit.

If you are not eligible to declare, you will get an error message.  If you are unclear on why you were unable to declare, contact your University College advisor (listed in DegreeWorks) or call the Advising Office at 828-262-2167.
