Declaring Your Major

North Park University encourages all undergraduates to declare a major by the end of their first year as a student. Students are invited to discuss their potential majors, as well as larger academic and life goals, with their assigned faculty advisors.

Declaring a Major


Students are eligible to declare their major after starting their first semester at North Park.

When do I use a major declaration form?

  • When declaring your major for the very first time.
    • Example: Change your official major from undeclared to BA in psychology
  • When changing your major.
    • Example: Changing from BS in nursing to BA in psychology
  • When adding on a second major to your previously declared program (double major).
    • Example: Adding BA in Spanish to go along with a BA in biology
  • Dropping a major.
    • Example: Dropping the BA in Spanish, but keeping BA in biology as your only major
