    Declaring a major

    At Seattle University, applicants are accepted directly to their majors of choice at the time of admission. No worrying about whether you’ll be able to get into your major! Freshmen or transfers with less than junior standingmay choose to be admitted to our pre-major program, which provides the opportunity to explore academic programs before committing to an academic major. It is important that you indicate only one intended major on the Seattle University Supplemental Applicationby checking the corresponding box (e.g. biology, or pre-major).
