University Transition Program

The University Transition program is intended for students who find themselves ineligible for the major they initially intended to pursue. Students will enter this major upon admission to the university as a transfer or as a readmitted student but not into the major of first-choice or when as a continuing student they are no longer able to make progress toward their first-choice major. University Transition allows students an accelerated support and framework for exploring alternative major paths. University Transition majors will be expected to meet with their advisor multiple times in the semester.

Generally speaking, all University Transition students have one term to work with their advisor to declare an alternate major path. Students need to transition out of the University Transition track into a major in a college no later than the third day of their second full semester in the University Transition major to avoid potential financial aid eligibility concerns.

While students are generally expected to move through the University Transition major in one term, it may be necessary for a student to stay longer if extenuating circumstances exist. Any extension beyond the one term, must be approved by the First-Year Studies department.
