FSHD Major Changes Coming Fall 2020

FSHD Pre-Major Changes Coming Fall 2020!

Students will no longer need to complete all pre-major courses before beginning FSHD upper division (300-400 level) courses.

  • All students will be declared as "FSHD majors"
  • Students will no longer begin as "FSHD pre-majors"
  • Cours requirements will not be changing
  • Course sequncing will be more flexible!

What this Means for Current FSHD Pre-Majors

All current FSHD pre-majors have recently had their majors updated from "Pre-FSHD" to "FSHD." All students can see that their major is now FSHD by looking at their academic plan on UAccess.

  • The FSHD “Pre-Major Requirements” will still be required for graduation, but will now be considered “Supporting FSHD Major Requirements”
  • All students will be eligible to take supporting FSHD Major Requirements concurrently with FSHD upper division courses starting summer/fall 2020 
  • You will no longer need to complete all pre-major courses first, as long as you follow the recommended prerequisites for upper division FSHD courses
  • See list of recommended course pre-requisites below

Preparing for Fall 2020

  • It is stil recommended that you follow your original checklist and the 4 year graduation plan/course sequencing for your catalog year, which you can find online: Checklists & Sample 4 Year Plans
  • FSHD advising can assist you with your course planning to ensure you're meeting prerequisites, and prepared for all future courses
  • All students in the FSHD major will be charged a $200 per semester student fee​
    • This fee will begin once you have reached junior status (completed 60 units of coursework)
