The deadline is February 13th at 4:00 PM
Failure to declare your concentration on time can affect your opportunity to register in April. Students who need an extension should contact the Dean of Students Office.
The process for declaring a concentration has changed this year this year.
To begin the process, go to http://my.hamilton.edu/dof/advising/sophomore-evaluation. You will first be asked to complete an evaluation of your current advisor (like teaching evaluations, these are completely anonymous; your advisor will see the answers without your name on them later in the spring).
Once you submit the advisor evaluation you will be redirected to another page where you can fill out the Sophomore Declaration of Concentration survey and then Concentration Declaration form. The Survey asks you to reflect briefly on your educational progress so far and your plans for the next two years. Please answer the questions thoughtfully. Your answers will be sent to your new concentration advisor to use during your future advising discussions.
Print both the survey and the declaration form and take them to your current advisor to discuss your choice of concentration and get his/her signature on the form.
Submit both the survey and the form to the Registrar's office by the date above. The forms will be accepted only with your advisor's signature and both the survey and form together.

Students can also opt in to receive text messages. Go to the Personal Profile Management page to add or verify your cell phone number, address and relative contact information.
Students are also required to provide Emergency Contact and Evacuation Information. Please verify or complete the information using the link.
