Exploratory Major Policy

Students not assigned to academic majors must meet requirements for admission in good standing. These students may be admitted to the Exploratory Program and will be assigned an advisor in the Office of Exploratory Advising, Taggart Student Center 302. An advisor helps the student plan to pursue a general program, while exploring his or her own aptitudes and various career opportunities in order to choose a major field. Career development assistance is also available to students through the Career Development Center in University Inn 102.

Students who are assigned to an academic major, but believe they have chosen their major unwisely, may (if they have earned less than 60 credits) transfer to the Exploratory Program or to a major of their own choice by following the change of major procedure. Students who do not meet the requirements for acceptance into a major department may also be referred to the Exploratory Program.

No degree is offered through the Exploratory Program. Most Exploratory students are freshmen and sophomores. Prior to the junior year, students should select a major and be taking major courses. Students should not remain in the Exploratory Program beyond 60 credits or past the end of the sophomore year.
