 4. Completion of at least 3 courses (9 credits) in the Major 


  •  If a student completes 40 credits by the end of a Summer Session, the Acceptance to Major check is done at the end of the following semester.
  • Students who change their major before ATM will be checked for ATM once they earn 40 credits.If all conditions 1, 2, and 3 above are met but it was impossible for the student to complete 9 hours in the major the student is given a warning rather than probation.
  • Transfer students who do not satisfy all requirements for ATM at the time of transfer will be checked for ATM once they earn 40 hours including transfer credits.
