Deciding on a major can be challenging, especially if you have a number of interests.  It’s important that you are both motivated by and confident in a discipline you’ll be studying for the next two years, so be sure to spend the time necessary to explore your values, interests, goals, and strengths, and to research majors’ job opportunities and requirements.

At NHSC, students are required to formally declare a major before enrolling for classes by completing the Change-Add Declaration Major Form.  Once this form is completed, submit it to the Registrar’s Office for processing.

Many students change their minds about a major after taking some initial courses in the first semester, and this is Okay.  However, make sure you understand that some classes will not apply to the new major! Every time you change your major, an Add/Change Declaration Major Form must be completed and returned to the Registrar’s Office.  Once you are added to the new major, it is a good idea to contact your new Academic Advisor and introduce yourself as a new student in the program.
