Major Exploration Meetings with Your Advisor

Now is a great time to schedule a meeting with your UST advisor to discuss where you are in your major-decision making: add/drop is over, midterms are still a few weeks away, and you have plenty of time to do any action items to help you pick a major before picking out your classes for the fall semester.

It is okay to come to a meeting without any idea of what you want to major in. You can also do some prep work ahead of time if you like. Here are some suggestions:

Finish in Four

UD students who complete at least 30 credits during their first year in college are more likely to graduate in four years. Talk with an advisor about developing an academic plan that includes both the correct number and the appropriate type of credits needed for making progress toward degree completion. You may want to consider taking a course during winter session to stay on track.

In the Know: Declaring a Major at UD

Students at the University of Delaware may declare a major and/or minor using the change program plan form available in UDSIS. Although most majors are available to all students, keep in mind that some majors are restricted to students who have met a set of specified criteria (such as a minimum GPA). Some majors also have limited availability due to reaching program capacity. Detailed requirements for restricted majors are available on the Registrar’s page. Please review these criteria carefully and ask an advisor if you have questions.

 

Major Exploration Tips & Resources

The What-If Report is a valuable tool to assist students when they are considering a particular academic plan. This resource is provided to help you with academic planning, but using it does not take the place of professional advising. UST students are encouraged to run the report for a major they are considering and bring it with them to their regular advising appointment to review with their advisors.
