Students who are currently undeclared
It is OK to be undeclared! You are not alone. We are here to help. We know that being undeclared can be a stressful time, but know that with a little work on your part and some assistance from a SAAC advisor, you will find that there is a major for you!
Students who are considering a major change
Many students who declare a major will change it at some point. During the 2012-2013 academic year, SAAC advisors assisted nearly 350 students who either changed their major to undeclared or who came in to our office to talk about that possibility. SAAC advisors are able to meet with students who need and/or want to explore other programs on campus.
Students who are interested in an Associate's Degree from UWSP
SAAC advisors are the official advisors for students pursuing the UWSP AD.
The Associate Degree (A.D.) is a liberal arts foundational degree for many college majors and is confirmation of an important accomplishment on the path to a bachelor’s degree. Meeting the four program outcomes of the General Education Program requires the following: demonstrate the critical thinking, quantitative, and communication skills necessary to succeed in a rapidly changing global society; demonstrate a broad knowledge of the physical, social, and cultural worlds as well as the methods by which this knowledge is produced; recognize that responsible global citizenship involves personal accountability, social equity, and environmental sustainability; and be able to apply this knowledge and skills, working in interdisciplinary ways to solve problems. The Associate Degree requires the completion of the General Education Program, except for the Communication in the Major and the Capstone Experience in the Major.
The following requirements apply to all Associate Degrees at UW-Stevens Point:
