Declaration of Departmental Major

In order to ensure better advising within the major and to allow departments to plan courses a year in advance, students are required to declare a major after earning 16 course units. Students who do not do so will be blocked from course registration. (Add-Venture students are exempted from this requirement.) Students who transfer to Moravian with 16 or more units will be permitted to register once without a declared major, but must declare a major before their second term of enrollment at the University. Registration holds may be lifted due to extenuating circumstances. Such holds may only be removed by the Associate Provost or the Director of Academic Advising.

To declare a major, students must complete the AMOS declaration process. While first-year students enter the University as Undeclared, they may complete the declaration process starting in the Fall of their first year.
