Effective March 1, 2014, ahead of advance registration for Summer and Fall 2014, undergraduate students who have earned more than 45 total credit hours, but who have not yet earned a Bachelor’s degree, must declare a major in a degree granting program, if they have not already done so.  Such students who do not declare a major will be prevented from registering for future terms until they do declare a major.  New and Transfer students, regardless of the number of credit hours that they may transfer to SIU, will be allowed to earn up to 26 credit hours of SIU work before being required to declare a major.  Students concurrently enrolled at SIU and in the SIUE Nursing program may be exempt from this requirement.
