Due to high demand for certain degree programs, several majors in the College of Liberal Arts are considered impacted. Each department has set their own required courses, GPA, and admission process.

Should you chose one of these majors, you will have “pre-major” status until the prerequisites for admission are completed. If you would like more information, visit the university’s official website regarding major-specific declaration requirements.
