Sophomores can declare a major immediately by completing the Long Range Plan and submitting it to the Academic Advising Center. You can declare your major any time during your sophomore year but no later than the Friday before mid-semester break during your fourth semester of enrollment. For most students, this deadline is the Friday that spring break begins.
|If your fourth semester of enrollment at Duke is:
||You must declare your major by:
||Oct. 6, 2017
||March 9, 2018
If you have not declared a major by the appropriate deadline, the Academic Advising Center will send you an e-mail reminder to immediately schedule an appointment with your college advisor and complete the declaration process. Students who continue to remain undeclared will have a dean’s block placed on their registration in DukeHub and will not be able to enroll in classes for the following semester. In addition, sophomores who have plans to study abroad or participate in DukeEngage in the summer or semester after the declaration deadline may be made ineligible for their intended program if they fail to declare by the deadline.
If you are having problems that prevent you from declaring your major by the deadline, it is important that you contact your academic dean.
