Choosing a Major
All incoming first-year engineering students have their majors set to “Engineering First Year Student”. In the first-year engineering courses, students learn about the nine engineering disciplines offered at the University of Arkansas so they can make an informed decision about their major. Students will declare their major in March during a Decision Day celebration. After Decision Day, students enrolled in Calculus I or higher will be advised by their new department. Students taking Precalculus in the spring will continue with the First-Year Engineering Program until they complete Calculus I.
