Students interested in a Geology Major May Declare at Anytime! (must be in good academic standing)
If you are interested in Geology. We strongly encourage you to meet with a department advisor early in your career at Western to discuss course selection, plan of study, research opportunities, volunteer opportunities, applying to graduate school, preparing for a career, and any other related topics. Please see the 2017-18 catalog for more information
We encourage Transfer Students to declare in their first quarter at Western and if possible contact the Department prior to coming to WWU. We can assist you with course planning to assure that you are taking the appropriate transferrable courses and will be prepared to "dig" into geology courses once you transfer to WWU.
The department advisors are committed to assisting students in determining their best program of study. We encourage students to declare a Geology Major well before registration begins so that you may have access to courses in the major prior to class registration. All of our courses are major restricted. Overrides codes may be given, however, priority is always given to a student who is currently a major.
Please note that there will be NO Major Declarations during Phase I Registration for all quarters - Spring 18 Registration: Feb 27 - March 12.
