Before you declare a Geoscience major/minor

While you may declare a Geoscience major/minor at any time, we strongly recommend visiting one of the Geoscience faculty early on in your career at UWGB to gain a deeper understanding of our program and to plan ahead for courses. This will help you prepare the best schedule possible and find out about current opportunities available to you.

The UWGB Admissions Office offers helpful resources for freshmen. There are specific admission requirements for freshmen and transfer students that want to apply at the university. You can also apply using your computer by filling out an electronic application. The Undergraduate Catalog will provide information about academic programs, facilities, services, and campus life at the university.

Also, be sure to visit the Academic Advising office if you have any questions regarding general education requirements, University procedures/policies, and registration help. Freshman and sophomore students are highly recommended to talk with their academic advisor(s) often. It's not a bad idea to pick a faculty advisor early in your college career also to meet the individual and discuss your future goals and career options.
