FAQS

How Do I...?

If I am a transfer student, how do I know which courses fulfill particular PLU requirements?
A.

While the only guaranteed way to know is to get an official evaluation from the Registrar's Office, you can view a transfer equivalency guide for all Washington state community colleges (and those in Portland).

How can I change my advisor?
A.

A Change of Advisor form must be filled out and returned to the Academic Advising Office, Ramstad 112. You must receive the signature of your new advisor in order to change your advisor.

How do I declare my major?
A.

Once you have decided upon a major, you'll need to make an appointment with the faculty chair of the department.  The faculty chair is listed on the department web site. Once the faculty chair of the department completes an online form, you will be officially declared by the Registrar's Office in Student Services.

Once I declare my major, may I change it?
A.

Yes. Changing to a new major is as simple as declaring a new major with the faculty chair of a department.  They can drop your previously declared major when they follow the same process as outlined above.  There is a question on the online form that asks if the major being declared is replacing a previously declared major.  Also, you may go to the Student Services Office (in the Hauge Administration Building) and request that a major is dropped.
