Exploratory Students

Exploratory tracks are available to students who have not yet decided on a specific program of study. These programs allow students to explore major options as well as make progress toward graduation through the completion of general education courses. 

  • College Exploratory programs are designed for students who are deciding among one or more majors in the same college. More information on College Exploratory programs is available below.
  • The University Exploratory program is intended for students who have no clear idea of which major to pursue and/or those who are trying to decide among majors that are not in a single college. More information on the University Exploratory program is available HERE .

All first-time, first-year UT Knoxville students must transition out of the exploratory track into a major no later than the end of their fourth tracking semester. Transfer students with less than 45 hours of transferrable work who are admitted as exploratory students must transition out of the exploratory track into a major no later than the end of their second tracking semester. Transfer students with 45 hours or more of transferrable work must be admitted directly into a major.
