Declaring Your Major


Important Dates To Remember!

Declare your major by Thursday, September 15, 2022. This is our fall 2022 deadline in order to have an advisor in your academic department for registration advising to select winter and spring 2023 classes.

All students who meet this deadline will have an academic advisor in their major department by Thursday, October 13, 2022.

Registration advising starts after fall break and continues through until registration is completed.

Winter & Spring 2023 course registration is currently published on the Academic Calendar to begin for students with senior standing on Friday, November 4, 2022. Always check Student Planning for your official date and time to register and schedule your registration advising meeting accordingly.



This form is for students who are declaring their major for the first time or who are changing a declared major. This form includes a survey of your Elon 1010 experience for first time major declarations. Please indicate major(s) and minor(s) on the data entry form page. What you enter will show on your degree audit.

Students currently enrolled in ELN 1010 cannot declare their major until the final month of that semester. This allows the instructor of ELN 1010 to maintain access to academic information crucial to the grading of assignments in the ELN 1010 class. For fall 2022, ELN 1010 students may begin declaring their major on November 1st.

Change of Minor Form

Complete this form to add or remove minors only.


At the time of major declaration, a student can request a preferred advisor within the declared department of study. While there is no guarantee that the request will be fulfilled, it will be noted within the department.
*PLEASE NOTE – Once a department advisor has been assigned to a student, any advisor changes must be requested through the departmental chair.
