Most students within the School of Business & Management begin as “intents to major”, for example, a freshman or transfer student may enter the University as an “accounting intent” major.

As intents to major, students are expected to work on completing the program entrance requirements and some major core requirements. This period of intent, also allows students to determine if a business program is the correct major for them.

How do I declare my major?

Students must successfully complete the program entrance requirements (foundation prerequisites) to become a declared major. Students are expected to complete the program entrance requirements by the end of their sophomore year. Only students who have declared their major will be able to take 400-level business courses.

Students should refer to their degree audit in Degree Works and work with their faculty advisor or the Center for Student Success to ensure all requirements are met.
