Declaring a major comes with many benefits:

  • You’ll have a clear path to graduation.
  • You’ll have the added support of an advisor familiar with your major, employment options and transfer opportunities.
  • Declaring a major is a requirement of financial aid and many scholarship opportunities.

Students can use the EMSI Career Coach to explore majors at Tyler, local career data and salaries.

Ways to Declare Your Major

Select a major on your application.
New students can declare a major when they apply to Tyler. Simply select your chosen major on your application.

If you are not sure what you want to study, did not select a major when you applied, or need to make a change to your major, you have two more options:

Meet with an advisor in the Advising Center.
Advisors can help you select a major based on your goals. If you are transferring from another college or university, bring a copy of your transcript with you when you visit the Advising Center.

Declare a major online.
Can’t make it to campus to meet with Advising? Complete our online form, and our advisors will work with you to declare your major without coming to campus.

Not sure if you have a major?
Use the Advisement Report in the myTyler Student Information System to see your current major.
