Other helpful suggestions as spring semester concludes:

Students who have completed 48+ credits are encouraged to officially declare their academic major. The major declaration form should be completed and submitted to the academic department of the major. The major declaration process includes a faculty advisor assignment in the major department.

Academic Counseling and the Career Development Center are great resources for students who are exploring their major options.

It’s always a good idea for students to create, update and check a four-year graduation plan. Academic counselors are available for these consultations on an ongoing basis.

The Center for Student Achievement website includes a helpful timeline of overall suggestions that help students stay on track every year of their enrollment. Check it out!
