Academic Advising

One of our key priorities in the Office for Undergraduate Education is to ensure that our students are on track academically and to assist in situations where students have run into unexpected difficulties.

All Emory College students are assigned a pre-major faculty advisor when they arrive on campus. The pre-major advisor will serve as the primary student advisor until a major has been declared. Upon declaration of a major, a faculty major advisor in the chosen field of study will be assigned.

In addition to faculty advisors, the Office for Undergraduate Education offers professional academic advisors who assist students with course planning, degree progress, and navigating challenges or concerns that may occur, and can provide referrals to appropriate campus partners to aid students in resolving concerns.

Declaration of Major

Back to top

Students should declare their intended major by the second semester of their second year. Typically this occurs before the Declaration of Major deadline (usually the third week in February.) Students are eligible to change their major after this date but their initial declaration is required by this time.

Students are eligible to declare up to two concentrations in Emory College of Arts and Sciences although only one major is required. This means a student may declare one major, two majors, or a major and a minor.

To declare (or remove) a major or minor, complete the Declaration of Major Form.

Once you have submitted the form you will receive an email with directions to contact the appropriate academic department for next step information. Changes to your major/minor in OPUS will not occur until these steps have been completed.
