or while you are in the semester of completing them you will want to apply for your choice major The departments will review the applications and depending on the process for each major the department will let you know if you have been accepted or not I applied for Psychology in Fall 2012 and was accepted in April 2013 Luckily the only major class required before applying was Psychology 200 While I was waiting for acceptance to the program there were still a few classes I could take that would help me graduate On a plus side of the impacted major you won t have to compete with the entire campus to get the required classes for your major Many courses in impacted majors will be restricted to only students declared as that major Some classes like Chemistry 115 and Biology 101 are still hard to acquire because they are also requirements for several other impacted majors These are all the things to keep in mind when choosing your major especially an impacted one Back to the main article menu

do some research on the minor that you would like to pursue Be sure to visit a academic advisor specific to your minor and feel free to ask for his her input Secondly make sure that the minor fits in
