Declaring a major in Environment & Natural Resources

As a student on one of The Ohio State University’s regional campuses, you are able to declare a major in the School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR).   Meet with your academic advisor on your campus to officially declare your major.  When you declare a major in our program, you are considered a student in SENR. 

With a declared SENR major at a regional campus we will be able to communicate with you, giving you the most up to date information related to your major.  You also have access to the degree audits on Buckeye Link to monitor your progress towards your degree.

Process for transitioning to Columbus campus

If you are ready to transfer to the Columbus campus to complete your degree, the process is simple.  You are eligible to transfer to Columbus once you have completed 30 semester hours and have at least a 2.0 GPA.   Meet with your regional campus advisor to complete the required campus change paperwork.  We will process the change paperwork and let you know when the transfer is completed.


As a student in one of our majors, you have the opportunity to apply for scholarships from the School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) and The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES- which SENR is part of).  SENR scholarships are limited to Columbus campus students. The scholarship application is administered through CFAES and can be found here. The deadline to apply for the 2020-21 school year is February 15, 2020.
The SENR scholarship committee will award scholarships for the upcoming academic year during the Spring Semester.  Students awarded a scholarship will be notified by  letter from the chair of the honors and scholarship committee.
