    How do I declare a major/minor or change my program? 

    When you are ready to declare a major or minor, use MyCWU. Learn how through the MyCWU Student User Guide.

    You can also change or drop a program through MyCWU, but we recommend meeting with an advisor if you are planning to make any significant changes. 

    When should I see my advisor?  

    It's always a great idea to connect with an academic advisor when you have questions—and even when you don’t. Make it a point to meet with them at least twice every academic year, ensuring you do so at least 2 weeks before your enrollment for the upcoming quarter. 

    As you progress into your sophomore year, consider scheduling a meeting with an advisor to create a graduation plan, if you haven't already done so. Aim to have this meeting no later than the first quarter of your junior year. This way, you can stay on track and make the most of your time in college. 

    I am a new incoming student to CWU, when do I register for classes?  

    Keep a close eye on your CWU email for advising communications. If you have previously earned college credit, make sure to have updated official transcripts or test scores sent to CWU Admissions.
