Students are expected to be accepted to a Major when they have earned 40 credits, usually after their third semester.  The following criteria are used by the Department Committee to identify students who qualify for Acceptance to Major:

  1. Minimum overall cumulative GPA of 1.90
  2. Minimum major cumulative GPA of 2.00
  3. Completion of ENGL 120 and ENGL 121
  4. Completion of at least 3 courses (9 credits) in the Major

The Department Committee can waive a strict mathematical application of these criteria in borderline cases (Major GPA between 1.80 and 2.00) where an examination of the pattern of grades (e.g., improving sequence of grades) would justify an exception.
A student who does not gain Acceptance to Major at this time must either change Majors or continue in that Major on Probation for the next semester.
