Welcome to the Division of General Studies
Greetings to new and returning General Studies Students!
You were most likely admitted as a General Studies student if you were not ready to declare a major. Being a General Studies student does satisfy the degree-seeking requirements for financial aid purposes.
General Studies also refers to a degree completion option offered through the Interdisciplinary Studies Program. An Interdisciplinary degree allows an ambitious and focused student to pull from several areas of knowledge to develop a unique curriculum that best prepares that student for his or her goals after graduation. Interdisciplinary students will work closely with an advisor and faculty members to select appropriate couress to achieve their desired academic goals.
Students who are interested in pursuing an Interdisciplinary degree should contact the Academic Advising Center at (907) 474-6396.
We want to assist you in finding the most appropriate degree program best suited to your interests. While you do not need to declare a major during your freshman year, it is wise to investigate and plan to do so during your sophomore year. There may be courses you would like to take with prerequisites that are important to take early in the degree program. Advisors are prepared to assist you at any time in helping make this decision.
The Division of General Studies provides the administrative home for undecided and undeclared students as well as pre-major students. The division provides advising, coordination and oversight of academic assistance and actions.
