At the beginning of each academic year, the Advising Center will provide the Dean of the College of Science (COS) a list of names with their intended majors for all incoming freshmen and transfer students who indicate an interest in a COS program of study. The Advising Center will retain advising responsibility for all incoming freshmen and transfer students until a COS faculty advisor is assigned.

If it is determined at any time that a student cannot gain acceptance to any of the degree programs in the COS, or cannot graduate with a degree from that program in the COS, the student will be required to change his or her major and seek academic advising outside of that program.

Student may enroll in COS courses which are outside of their degree program provided that they have the appropriate prerequisites. Any student wishing to enroll in any 300‐level science courses outside of their major, who has not satisfied the criteria for acceptance into the degree program which requires this course, must obtain departmental consent before registering.
