Declaring a Major
It is to your advantage to declare a major as soon as possible. This will allow you to seek specific advising in the department and to plan out your academic schedule. You will also gain access to classes that are restricted to majors only. If you need help deciding on a major, you are invited to meet with an advisor. For assistance connecting with an advisor, contact Sherena Geariety (CV 102, 360-650-3505), Sherena.Geariety@wwu.edu.
How to declare a Major
Contact the department to declare a major. Most majors have a set of prerequisites that you must complete prior to official entry into the program. Once you have declared a major, take advantage of the major advising system in your respective department and seek advising on a regular basis from your assigned major advisor. It is also suggested that you complete a plan of study that will guide you through the major.
Examples of majors that cover some or all of the prerequisites for allied health programs are:
