Self-Designed Major (SDM)

Students with special educational goals may design an alternative major in lieu of a traditional major. All General Education requirements must be fulfilled by those carrying out a Self-Designed Major. SDM forms are available in the Office of Academic Affairs or the Office of Academic Records. SDMs are to be developed in consultation with a Self-Designed Major Planning team and must be submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs before the completion of 44 semester hours. Transfer students with more than 44 semester hours must complete the SDM proposal process within the first semester of enrollment. A student must have a cumulative Wilmington College GPA of 2.5 or better before an SDM can be approved.
