Declaring a Major in General Science

Students planning to major in one of the General Science majors may declare as early as possible.  Early declaration is costless and in no way restricts the student’s options for changing plans later, but it does have some advantages.  Advantages are easier access to advising for help in program planning and easier access to classes that are restricted by major as well as protection against future catalog revisions that change degree requirements.  Declared majors are also eligible for departmental scholarship awards.

To declare, contact Lori Torres at (360) 650-7605 or lori.torres@wwu.edu to make an appointment.  At that appointment, your transcripts will be reviewed for any potential transfer equivalences so please bring an unofficial copy of your transcripts as you will begin work on your Plan of Study.
