During their first few semesters at Northeastern, undeclared students learn about opportunities across the University. Undeclared students typically enroll in the same introductory core and major courses as students with declared majors. Students must meet all the prerequisite course and GPA requirements of their intended major and are encouraged to declare a major by the end of their sophomore year in order to stay on track for graduation.

Students in our program who would like to explore their interests and develop their skills by going out on co-op before declaring a major may do so. They are welcome to enroll in a 1 credit co-op class, EXED 2000, in the fall of their sophomore year and go out on co-op in the spring of their sophomore year if they would like more time to explore.
