Students who wish to postpone the selection of a major may enroll for up to one year as a general science student, following the curriculum described below. This curriculum is designed to allow students more time to become familiar with programs offered by the College of Engineering and Sciences. Students may need to make up some credit hours later on (eight or fewer in most cases), if they follow the general science curriculum. Students are urged to transfer to degree programs as early as possible.
Students in this program are advised by the associate dean’s office until a degree program is selected. Once 30 credit hours (not including remedial courses) have been successfully completed, continued registration is contingent on selection of a degree program. Acceptance into the desired degree program is automatic unless the student has been academically dismissed.
