All new students start in the system as “first-years,” with an anticipated graduation date four years from matriculation at your first institution. Over the course of the year, you and your adviser will formulate your plan of study for both remaining general education and major requirements.
You are not required to have a major declared before matriculation into the College. If you have already declared a major but those plans have changed prior to matriculation, please be in contact with the Senior Adviser for Curricular Planning in the College Dean of Students Office. Once you matriculate into the College, you should talk to your adviser about formally declaring a major or minor.
