Steps to declaring your major and/or minor in CCFA

  1. Identify your faculty advisor (see below).
    • Some advisors are pre-determined, some are assigned, and some are decided by you.  Make sure you read the list carefully.

  2. Drop by their office hours.  If you can't make their office hours, email them to schedule an individual meeting.

  3. At the meeting, faculty advisors will declare your major or minor with you in Degree Progress.
    • Ask faculty if you have any transfer credit you'd like them to look at or there are any amendments you need them to make.

  4. Check Degree Progress  (formerly Advising Workbench) for confirmation everything is accurate.  You will also receive an email alerting you to an update to your record. 


If you are declaring a major or minor outside of CCFA

Each department does things differently.  Call or drop by the department's office to see what their process is or to get advisor contact information.
