Application Cycles

Beginning May 2021, deadlines will be implemented for the Application for Declaration of Undergraduate Major used by students in the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, and other professional schools to declare a Bloustein School major.  This initiative is an effort to assist you in declaring your major of interest in a timely manner.

Once you apply, you will be notified of the admission decision via email by the notification date. During the fall and spring, this will assist newly admitted students in pre-registering for the next term as a major.

Students admitted during summer may have the opportunity to change fall course registrations to majors only courses after declaration.

Because this is a new process, we have implemented 3-day application periods to accommodate students who miss the deadline for the main cycles for 2021-2022.  However, certain courses may be closed and special permission numbers may not be available.

Note: If a student misses the 3-day application period, they can apply for the next main cycle.
