All SUNY New Paltz students must formally declare a major before they are officially considered enrolled in that major. It is an important step. It gets you connected with a faculty advisor in that department and starts you on the path to graduation in four years. Each department has its own procedure for major declaration; some have entrance requirements (a certain GPA or array of courses) while others do not. All students must declare a major for which they meet entrance requirements by the time they have 60 credits -- completed or in progress -- but it is best not to wait that long. 

You declare a major by going to the major department, meeting with the Department Chair, receiving a major plan of study, completing the major declaration form, and being assigned an advisor. For more detailed information, see the academic policy for major/minor declaration
