James Madison University

Declaring a Health Science Major

Incoming Students: As a new freshmen or transfer student. You will declare your major through the JMU One Book website when you sign up for orientation. This major becomes your official major on your academic record. 

Current Students: If you are a current student wishing to declare or change a major, minor, or pre-professional program, you must complete a request through MyMadison. After you complete the request, you are required to meet with Laura Blosser to complete the declaration process. Visit www.meetme.so/laurablosser to schedule an appointment. Students have two months after submitting the declaration request through mymadison to meet with Laura or the request will be denied. The Health Sciences major does have blackout dates. Students are only admitted twice a year, September 15th and February 15th. If you would like to take HTH courses in the Spring semester, you need to see Laura on or before September 15th. If you would like to take HTH courses in the Fall semester, you need to see Laura on or before February 15th.

For additional assistance making this request, please view the Change/Declare a Major/Minor tutorial in MyMadison or on the tutorials website.
