Permits & Forms

A number of classes require an approved permit before you are able to register. These are processed through your advisor before the semester begins. Each advisor has their own procedures, so be sure to request your permit properly. Some of these forms are also found in the advising office.


Major and Minor Declaration

After reviewing the list of major options, make a decision that aligns with the Degree Progression and Completion Deadlines and Excess Hours Surcharge Policy and submit a request to declare/change your major. After your submission, an evaluation of your academic record will be reviewed and compared to guidelines. You may receive a referral to see an Academic Advisor to discuss your Declaration/Change of major request before it can be processed.

Remember, your request might not be permitted if it does not fall within the criteria of the Degree Progression and Completion Deadlines Policy.  

Please use The Major and Minor Declaration Form to submit your request.

Class Schedule Search

The Class Schedule Search lists all classes for each semester. This tool lets you view open classes through a variety of search options. The list also provides CRN numbers that you will need when registering for classes on OASIS.
