Undeclared Major

Policies  > Orientation & Enrollment (Registration) > Undeclared Major

Exploratory Studies is a short-term entry major that intentionally integrates academic support with career counseling to allow undecided students to make informed decisions about, and prepare for, declaring a degree-seeking major.

All freshmen students will declare a major by the beginning of their sophomore year (30 credit hours), if they have not already done so.

Newly admitted undeclared transfer students

  • with less than 30 credit hours are to choose a major within their second semester, prior to registration for their third semester courses.
  • with 30-44 credit hours are to choose a major within their first semester at UH, prior to registration for 2nd semester courses.
  • with 45 or more credit hours are to choose a major prior to attending UH (i.e., these students will only be accepted into UH with a major).
