Majors Policy

​To ensure timely completion of a degree, students must declare a major in the semester after they complete 45 semester credit hours.  A student who fails to meet college requirements for a major in this semester must confirm their degree of interest with an academic advisor.  The advisor will file a degree plan by assisting the student to run an electronic degree evaluation, listing the requirements necessary to complete the major of interest.

To ensure timely completion of a degree, all UHD transfer students with more than 45 semester credit hours must declare a major no later than their second regular semester of enrollment.  A student who fails to meet college requirements for a major in this semester must confirm their degree of interest with an academic advisor.  The advisor will file a degree plan by assisting the student to run an electronic degree evaluation listing the requirements necessary to complete the major of interest.

Undeclared students who have completed 90 or more semester credit hours, have not been accepted into a college, are on probation or suspension, or who do not meet college requirements for their major of interest must meet with an advisor to identify and apply for a major.  A student will select a major for which he or she qualifies that allows the student to graduate in a timely fashion and avoids undertaking excessive hours.  The advisor will file a degree plan by assisting the student to run an electronic degree evaluation, listing the requirements necessary to complete the major of interest.  A student subsequently may change majors if they successfully satisfy all college requirements to declare.
