How do I declare my major?

A photo of Milkberry Milkberry
I'm very confused about declaring majors.
So I understand that most universities allow students to declare their majors in their second year.
If I applied to one for, per say, linguistics, and got accepted for it, do I have to stick with it? Or do I get to change my mind about it and choose a different major in my second year?

Pretty sure you can switch at any time, though the later you switch the more courses you may lack is what I've gathered.

You can change majors as many times as you like so long as you have the necessary prereqs/GPA for that major.

Not sure how other schools do it, but at Mac, you go online onto your student account at the end of 1st year (March/April) and literally select from a list of majors from a drop down menu and then press confirm.
