Asked by: Scott
Question: What if i declared my major late? Do the course i took in third year apply to requirement when I don't declare it?

Answered by: Emma
Answer: Hi Scott! While it is recommended you declare your major after 60 credit hours have been obtained, it is fine if you declare it late. Lots of people take extra time to decide on a major or even switch majors in the course of their time at Saint Mary's! Personally, I declared an initial major after 60 credit hours but then I added a second major in my 3rd year! That's what is great about an undergrad degree, really exploring and figuring out your interests! Your courses apply towards the applicable requirements even if your major is not yet declared. Just keep in mind that your major must be declared before application has been submitted to graduate in your final year. It is also a good idea to declare your major when you decide on one because you must go to an academic advisor to sign the form to do so. Since you have to see them to have the form signed you can ask them questions about what you need to complete to satisfy your major requirements. This can help keep you on track and ensure that you graduate when you plan to!
