Declaring a Major
CSULB students must meet precise major-specific criteria in order to formally declare a major. This requires that students begin as pre-majors and then declare the major if and when they complete the major-specific criteria. All students must have a declared major by the time they reach 60 earned units.
This applies equally to students who are:
- Admitted into a "pre-major" and are requesting to declare the major
- Requesting to change major
- Requesting to add a major
Please see the major-specific requirements from Enrollment Services to declare a major within the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
If you have additional questions regarding the major-specific requirements or would like to meet with an advisor to work with you on a timeline, please schedule an appointment.
Pre-Major Declaration Guidelines
First-time freshmen admitted as undeclared or admitted to a different college will be allowed to switch their pre-major to the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics based on the criteria outlined in the Pre-Major Declaration Guidelines (PDF).
In-person appointments are canceled until further notice.
Students can meet with advisors for online appointments using Zoom. Please schedule your appointment through Student Success Collaborative in Single Sign-On and select "Online-Academic Advising." Your advisor will send a separate email with the Zoom link for the appointment.
