A: If you are a transfer student without an associate (AS or AA) degree you may have some transfer classes that can substitute to fulfill our Foundations requirements. Depending on your major, you can meet with an advisor in the Academic Discovery Center to see if substitutions can be made. If you are a transfer student with an associate (AS or AA) degree your Foundations requirements are complete except for the capstone (FDCNC 250) and remaining religion requirements including FDREL 200.
A: Every student is assigned a faculty mentor. However, in regard to class planning, students do not generally meet with their faculty mentor until their junior year. Faculty mentors mostly help with upper-division class planning as it relates to career strategy and graduate school.
As freshmen and sophomores, students receive advising help from their major's Academic Discovery Satellite Center. Satellite Advisors are experts in class planning for their particular areas. Also, there is the Academic Discovery Center, which is the center over general advising for Foundation requirements and major/career exploration.
A: Changing majors and minors cannot be done online. Instead, to declare/change your major or minor, please visit the Academic Discovery Satellite Center over the new major you'd like to declare.
A: Some majors require you to have a minor or clusters, while others do not. To find out about your major's specific requirements check the Catalog for details. If you have any questions once you have checked the catalog, please contact your major's Academic Discovery Satellite Center.
A: If you are unsure about what you want to declare for a major or pursue as a career, we recommend taking General Studies 100 (GS 100), Career Exploration. The 1 credit class is designed to assist in making a decision concerning your career or major. Career assessments will help you assess personal interests, work styles, preferences, and skills to determine your career path. At the conclusion of the class, you will gain a better understanding of the job market and careers available to you.
Another option is to take Advising 101 (ADV 101), Undecided to Decided. This class can be done before you get here. This zero-credit option gives you an online class designed to be done at your convenience. During this class you will be working at your own pace through six online discovery exercises. These exercises take you step-by-step through your major selection process. At the conclusion of the class, you will have selected a major and created a class plan for that major. Since this class is not offered for credit it is not available through the registration system. Instead, interested students should register on the U2D Web site.
