Dear AB Sophomores,

I have heard from some of you that you are unclear about the procedures for signing into your department, particularly the Pre-Concentration Form.  You access that form by clicking on the “Academic Planning Form” link in TigerHub.  It is just a modified version of the APF, so it will look very similar, but that is the right form. 

Here is a screenshot of what you’ll see:


Some departments may ask you to fill out a new Departmental APF afterwards, so please follow the instructions that they provided to you at the open houses.  If you need to contact them, PDF iconhere is a list of the departmental contacts

As a reminder, here is the timeline I provided you earlier, with a more direct link to the major declaration form on the Registrar’s site:

Prior to enrolling:                        Please follow the instructions given by your department.  (If you missed the open house, where these procedures are explained, please contact your departments.)   Generally, you will need to schedule an appointment with the designated faculty adviser for your new department and complete the Pre-Concentration Form or Departmental APF on TigerHub (whatever form shows up where the APF link usually appears), which temporarily releases your course history to department advisers to facilitate advising discussions.


April 17 - April 25                       A.B. sophomores choose their concentration on the Registrar’s website athttps://registrar.princeton.edu/student-services/majors/.  Students who do not indicate a concentration by April 25 will be placed on Registrar’s Hold and will be unable to select fall term courses.


April 26                                         Sophomore course selection period begins.


April 28                                         Deadline for current sophomores to select fall courses via TigerHub.  The penalty for late selection is $10/day.  Late sophomores must submit worksheet in person to the Office of the Registrar.


This timeline was also sent to you by Deputy Registrar Julia Aggreh on Thursday, April 6.  Normally the major declaration site is only accessible during the major declaration period (April 17-25) so don’t be alarmed if you can’t access it yet. 

Just let me or your departments know if you have any questions!
