Change of Campus
Students generally declare their academic major at the end of their second year of enrollment during the entrance-to-major process. If the student applies for a major that is not offered at the student’s current location, the student will be required to select an approved location during the entrance-to-major process.
A Concurrent Majors Program is one in which students take courses to concurrently meet the requirements of at least two majors, with graduation for all majors in the program occurring during the same semester. Concurrent majors must be all at the baccalaureate or associate degree level.
A student who fails to earn a 2.00 cumulative grade-point average will be placed on academic warning. A student placed on academic warning will have a hold placed on registration and will be required to meet with an academic adviser in order for this registration hold to be removed. To remove academic warning, the cumulative grade-point average must be 2.00 or higher.
A student in academic warning who fails to maintain a semester grade-point average of 2.00 or higher will be academically suspended. A student who has been academically suspended may not schedule courses at the University for two consecutive semesters. (Note: Summer session is equal to one semester.)
Academic Advising Center
The Center provides academic advising, information, and referral services to Division of Undergraduate students, as well as to students enrolled elsewhere in the University, prospective students, faculty, and staff. Advisers help students evaluate their educational plans, answer questions about major fields, and provide information about policies and procedures.
