Degree-Seeking Status (Matriculation)

A student with degree-seeking status may be eligible for financial aid, is able to plan a course of study that meets academic needs and interests, and will be assigned an advisor. A student who is uncertain of their major will be matriculated as an Academic Exploration student and will be assigned an advisor who specializes in academic and career counseling. Students in the Academic Exploration program take a combination of courses in satisfaction of General Education requirements and in areas of potential academic interest. Students may stay in the Academic Exploration program up to the completion of 45 credit hours, at which point they will be expected to declare a major program.
