Are you still deciding on your academic major?

If you haven’t declared or selected your major, UNIV220: Decide/Confirm Major (2-credit elective) course will help you meet your goal.
Based on consistent feedback we’ve received from students who’ve completed the UNIV 220 course, 93% of students reported they had either significantly narrowed their choices or had made a final decision on their major.

Do not wait until the first week of class to register! Three sections are still open:
• Monday, 5 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.
• Tuesday, 5 p.m. – 6:50 p.m.
• Wednesday, 1 p.m. – 2:50 p.m. This is a hybrid section with online coursework and in-class meetings every other week
