Requirements for Undeclared Major
A student who wants to enter one of our Degree Completion Program (DCP) majors and meets the other admission requirements of the associated DCP major, but does not yet have at least 45 hours of prior college credit can be admitted as an Undeclared major until the required 45 hours is reached. These students can take any JBU class as an elective (prerequisites must be met) as long as the intent is to reach 45 hours and then enroll in one of our DCP majors.
