  • A welcome letter that confirms your declaration,
  • An assessment of your progress toward the major requirements based on your unofficial transcript,
  • If applicable, suggestions of potential substitutions, contacts for in-person or online meeting, and some other resources for the major requirements,
  • You will be put on the “geog-majors” e-mail list, to receive information about scholarships, internships, and Geography classes and other program information.
