UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Students who choose to enter UW-River Falls as pre-major/exploratory will complete required coursework while assessing their opportunities.
Many students enter their first year of college with a number of exciting ideas about their potential major. The pre-major/exploratory option allows students to learn about themselves, understand our wide array of academic majors, and make decisions with confidence.
To support students in their transition into a specific academic program by the end of their sophomore year or completion of 45 credits.
We encourage all exploratory students to develop a strategy for effective decision making and academic planning.
