School Assignments

Welcome to the School Assignment application. All Undergraduate/Undeclared freshmen are required to complete the School Assignment by 4/19/2019 3:00:00 PM.

The purpose of School Assignment is for Undergraduate/Undeclared freshmen to:
  • Gather information in order to decide which school (academic unit) to be assigned to.
  • Fill out the forms needed to be assigned to a new academic school.
Once you have completed this process online, you will be assigned to the academic school of your choice as an “Unaffiliated” student. Being “Unaffiliated” in a school means:
  • You are no longer Undergraduate/Undeclared and will be under the jurisdiction of the school you have chosen. You are NOT declaring a major.
  • Your jurisdiction will change in terms of academic advising, policies (e.g., add, drop, change deadlines), academic probation/disqualification action, dean’s signatures, etc.
  • Enrollment into “restricted to majors only” courses is not guaranteed, nor does this grant a greater likelihood of being accepted into a major within that school compared to other students outside of the school.

School Assignment is a one-time process and it is important to note that once you are assigned to a school, you will remain “Unaffiliated” within that school until you declare a major. Keep in mind that even after you are assigned to a school, you can still change into a major outside of that school.

You need to watch a presentation about the school you are interested in before you start the process to make sure you understand the school's requirements. You will need to pass a quiz with the information from the presentation before you can be assigned to the school.
