Departments and programs will then use that information to assign you a Sophomore Plan advisor for each major/minor. That advisor will help guide you through the planning process. If you need to change your prospective major/minors after the February 12 deadline, then you must email Mira Baric to:Mbaric1@swarthmore.edu (Dean's Office) to request access to that part of the Sophomore Plan portal.
