    Anyone know when USCGA Cadets are required to declare a major? (Don't remember if son had to list an intended major on the application or not...) Is it difficult for them to change majors once they have made an election? Thanks

    I know you have to be accepted into the major of your choosing by the end of your sophomore year. Freshman year is more like a track, whereas sophomore year you start getting into major specific classes and then you are accepted into it at the end. As for switching, I'm not really sure!:confused:

    Your major selection does not affect what classes you take as a 4/c. You choose your major in the spring of your 4/c year and take your first major specific courses as a 3/c. Some of the majors allow you to switch into them after first semester 3/c year, you may just lose a free elective later on.
