Students pursuing a degree program should file an application form for the major field of study of their choice, normally after the second semester midterm examinations in the first or second year. In accepting students to the major course, each Department has its own policies and procedures (such as qualifying examinations and interviews) which are specified in the respective department’s brochures. In most departments, students start with their major field of study in their junior year while in some courses, like Education, Fine Arts, Mass Communication, Interior Design, Information Technology, Nutrition and Dietetics and Accountancy, they begin right in their first year. Once accepted into the major, a student is expected to fulfill certain retention requirements of the department. A student who fails to fulfill retention requirements would be recommended by the Department Chair/Coordinator to the Dean/Registrar either for probationary status or delisting from the Program.
