Students declare their major curriculum in the second
semester of their first year. Students are notified via email of the procedures
and deadlines for doing so. After declaring his or her major, each student is
assigned to an academic adviser in the selected major who will provide advice
about the program and its requirements. Students who fail to declare a major by
the deadline will be blocked from preregistering for their fall semester
classes until they submit the major declaration form.
A list of majors open to students in the School of
Environmental and Biological Sciences is given in the Programs of Study section
of this chapter.
Students selecting to complete a minor or double major
should indicate that declaration online at mymajor.sebs.rutgers.edu. A second
major in a discipline not offered at the School of Environmental and Biological
Sciences must complete a Declaration of Double Major form available at the Office
of Academic Programs, Martin Hall, and online at sebs.rutgers.edu.
A change of major should be discussed with the student's
faculty adviser and the undergraduate program director of the curriculum the
student plans to enter. Such a change should then be made online at mymajor.sebs.rutgers.edu
Students selecting a first major not offered at the School
of Environmental and Biological Sciences must apply for a transfer to the
school offering the major (school-to-school transfer). Application deadlines, admissions
criteria, and online application forms can be accessed at http://admissions.rutgers.edu/schooltoschool.
