Meetings for declaring a major are scheduled throughout the fall and spring semesters. Students must register online for one of these orientations. At the start of each semester, the link to register for a declaration meeting will be available and posted on the department website.  Registering for a declaration meeting indicates your attendance for a selected meeting date.

Students in the Schools of Arts and Sciences (SAS) or the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) will use the MyMajor system to submit the major declaration request. The declaration request will be approved after the student attends the department declaration meeting.

SEBS MyMajor System

Students from other schools within Rutgers University can declare a major in Exercise Science or Sport Management only with approval of the Dean of their school.

As of Fall 2018, incoming SEBS students will not be able to declare a major in Sport Management.  Students who enrolled in SEBS Spring 2018 or earlier are eligible to declare a major in Sport Management.  All SEBS students are eligible to declare the Exercise Science major.
