Haslam College of Business

Business Administration Exploratory Program

The Haslam College of Business Exploratory program is designed for students who are deciding among one or more majors in the College. It allows students to explore major options as well as make progress toward graduation through the completion of general education courses. Exploratory students are required to meet with their advisor every semester.

All full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later must transition out of the exploratory track into a major no later than the end of the fourth tracking semester. Transfer students admitted as exploratory students must transition out of the exploratory track into a major no later than the end of their second tracking semester.
