Dean’s Hold – Mandatory Major Declaration – Spring 2022

Dear Student,

We are writing to inform you that you will not be able to enroll in classes for future terms since you have reached 86 credits (these 86 credits include credits you are currently enrolled in this term) and you have not declared a major since our last email communication to you on February 8, 2022. You can get the enrollment hold immediately removed by going to the major department and declaring a major.

Detailed information about this policy can be found at:  When do I need to declare a major in the College of Letters & Science?

If you are unable to declare a major at this time, you should discuss your options with either the advisor in the academic department in which you wish to declare your major or else your assigned academic advisor. Please do this as soon as possible.

Please see the link below for information about finding advisors names and contact information:  Find an Advisor

Additionally, we want to make you aware of the Career Exploration Center, which can assist you in exploring majors that may be of interest to you.
