How to Declare Major or Minor

Declaring your Major/Minor and Staying in Briggs

  • Fill out the Major/Minor declaration form online. You will see the change reflected in StuInfo within two business days. 

Changing your Major and Leaving Briggs

To change to Exploratory Preference

Students who would like to change their major to Exploratory Preference can request the major change by completing the online form.

To change to another major in a different college

  1. First, meet with the academic advisor for your intended major to review the major, completed coursework, remaining requirements, and any additional admission requirements for that major. That advisor will put a note in your file approving the major change or requiring more information. 
  2. Then complete the online Leaving Briggs form.
  3. Last, you will receive an exit survey via email. You must complete this before your major is released.  The data collected is part of a research project so we can better serve our students. 

Please note that the major changes/declarations (above) are not complete until you complete the steps and get confirmation.

Changing your Major into Briggs

  • Prospective MSU students must declare ‘Lyman Briggs’ on their application in the admissions portal.
  • Lyman Briggs does not accept Major changes into Briggs once a student has started at MSU.
