Entrance to Major


Definition and Policy

Entrance to major is the point at which students enter particular degree programs.

Upon acceptance to Penn State, most first semester baccalaureate degree students are admitted to a pre-major in a college, such as Agricultural Sciences or Health and Human Development or to the Division of Undergraduate Studies, not to a specific major within the college. Pre-majors for The Behrend College are BCBUS (Business), BCEGN (Engineering), BCHSS (Humanities and Social Sciences), BCSCN (Science) and BCEDU (Education).
