There is no official deadline for declaring your major, although college guidelines suggest that this should be done by the end of the sophomore year. We would encourage you to officially declare you major as early as possible. By declaring yourself as a chemistry major, we can ensure that you are advised by chemistry faculty members. Chemistry advisors are very familiar with the requirements for the various tracks of the chemistry degree, and will ensure that you are making appropriate progress toward graduation. In addition, chemistry faculty advisors can give advice regarding other aspects of being a chemistry major, such as undergraduate research and career options.
