Undergraduate satisfactory progress

Undergraduate satisfactory progress

If a student is pursuing a baccalaureate degree, they are expected to make satisfactory progress toward the attainment of that degree and is expected to enter a major and graduate after completion of a reasonable number of credits.

The 105-credit rule

Undergraduates must declare a major by the time they have earned 105 credits or a hold will be placed on their registration until they either declare a major, or meet with an adviser and receive a pre-major extension. 

The 210-credit rule

The university’s satisfactory progress policy requires students to complete their undergraduate degree programs within 30 credits beyond the minimum required for the degree.  Because most degrees require 180 credits, students generally must complete their programs by the time they earn 210 credits.
