The University requires students to meet with their academic advisors before the end of the term in which they will earn 90 cumulative credit hours to conduct preliminary degree checks and develop plans that will determine the manner in which students will complete unfulfilled degree requirements. Once students and advisors complete these preliminary degree checks, any changes to student degree programs, majors, minors, or academic tracks that may have an impact on time required to complete degrees or counts of excess credit hours will require written approval from the College Dean. Please note that students who have declared dual degree or double majors as part of their program plans and do not complete the requirements of these program plans will not be eligible for refunds of excess credit hour surcharges associated with incomplete portions of their program plans.
