How to Declare a Biology Major
Declaring a Biology Major is not only a fantastic choice, it's very simple!
- Step 1
Print and fill out the Major or Minor Declaration Form

Minor Declaration Form (pdf)
- Step 2
Bring your completed form to the current Department Chair for a signature.
We currently have two chairs! Dr. David Craig (Olin 208) and Dr. Chris Smith (Olin 210) are co-chairing the department and either can approve your declaration.
- Step 3
Photograph the moment
Often, biology majors are so excited to have declared they sometimes wake up and think it was all a wonderful dream. To prevent this from happening to you, you will be asked to take a photograph as proof. To view our past and current majors check out our flickr site.
- Step 4
Submit the form
Turn your completed form into the registrar's office.
- Step 5
Request lab access
If you don't already have 24/7 access to Olin, or need additional after hours access to key-pad guarded lab spaces, contact Gabrielle James, Administrative Assistant for Biology & Chemistry in Olin 202.
