The President, on the Provost's recommendation, has approved a university-wide academic policy for Declaring a Major. The Effective Date is July 1, 2017 to coincide with the 2017-2018 course catalogs.
Undergraduate students must declare a major before earning 60 credits at USM. Transfer students who enter USM with more than 60 credits must declare a major before the end of their first semester at USM. Registrar holds will appear on the record of any undergraduate student not in compliance with this policy.
