Major and Minor Declaration Instructions

We have implemented an online Major/ Minor Declaration and Confirmation process.

Students can complete the form online in order to declare a major and/or minor and submit it to their advisor, who will be able to approve it electronically. Students are expected to meet with their desired faculty advisor prior to submitting a new declaration or confirmation form. More information about the process can be found here.

Students who are counting courses towards their major/minor that were not taken at Wellesley need to get those specific courses approved by the department chair or program director.

The new online Major/ Minor declaration form can be found in MyWellesley:

MyWellesley > Administrivia > Especially for Students > Major/Minor Declaration and Confirmation Form

Things to keep in mind:

  • If you are declaring two majors, you must complete a separate form for each of them.
  • You cannot count the same course toward two majors.
  • You may declare a) one major, b) two majors, or c) a major and a minor.
