Academic Catalog

Exploratory Students

EKU Campus

If students are academically exploring and are not ready to declare a major, they will be enrolled as an exploratory student. A major should be declared as soon as students decide on their field of interest. Students must officially declare a major prior to registration during the semester in which they register for their 45th hour. Until a major is declared, students’ curriculum will include general education courses appropriate for most baccalaureate programs. In addition, students will be encouraged to take exploratory electives that will allow them to sample disciplines they may like to select as a major.
