Department of Exploratory Studies

Pre-Major Program

The Pre-Major program here in University College is part of the Exploratory Studies initiative that is designed to provide you with additional services and programs that will assist you in fulfilling your educational goals. Academic Advisors identify your goals at orientation and ensure you register for courses that will align with your desired program at UToledo.

During your time as a pre-major student, you will:

  • Have an assigned Academic Advisor and Student Success Coach
  • Attend a specialized orientation course and career exploration course
    • UC 1120: Career and Self-Evaluation (2 credits)
    • UC 1150: Orientation for College Success (3 credits)
  • Participate in a cohort-based curriculum

You will meet with your academic advisor every semester to create a plan to declare your major at UToledo. Once you meet the requirements to officially declare a major in the college of your choice, your advisor will walk you through the process.
