Declaring a Major

  • Majors and minors are listed on the Undergraduate Programs page, and in each department's program description.

  • Each academic department will determine eligibility requirements, academic standards, and length of validity of application, with revalidation required after 7 years.  To graduate after the valid application time, a student may be required to meet new major program requirements.

  • Students are encouraged to declare a major as early as possible.

  • Students who have completed 80 credits at St. Cloud State University and have not declared a major or a B.E.S. degree program will not be allowed to register for a subsequent term.  Transfer students who completed 45 or more credits at another institution(s) before admission to SCSU, have completed 35 or more credits at SCSU, and have not declared a major or B.E.S. degree program will not be allowed to register for a subsequent term.  Exceptions may be made by Advising and Student Transitions.

  • Students interested in minors should contact the appropriate departments.
