To Declare Biology as your Major
If you are a current Arts & Sciences student, you will need to go to 202 POT to complete the paperwork. Please bring your student ID, you will be asked to show it.

If you are a student outside the College of A&S switching majors to biology, your first step will be to go to the advising office in your current college for the necessary paperwork.

Undeclared majors will go to 109 Miller Hall and stop by the Undergraduate Studies front desk with your picture ID and tell the receptionist that you would like to declare a major. You will be asked to fill out a survey and will be given paperwork to deliver to your college of choice. For more information click here.
