Admission to the Human Development Major
Any student may declare Human Development as a major upon entering the university. Students must meet the department requirements of the current catalog at the time they declare Human Development as their major.

Declaring Human Development as a major does not assure admission to the program. A student must be formally admitted to the Department of Human Development and Family Studies to register for advanced courses and complete work for the degree.

Criteria for Admission:
1. Completion of the following group of foundation courses with a C or better: HDF 211, 212, and 302 or 303 or 304
2. 51 semester hours (junior standing) with a minimum overall GPA of 2.2
3. Transfer students with 51 semester hours may apply for admission after completing 12 semester hours at UNCG.

Students will not be permitted to take upper division courses in the department (HDF 350, 360, 421, 425, 428, 432, 435, 441, 445, 450, 452, 460, 462, 477, 482, 499) unless they have been formally admitted by the department (or in the case of non-majors, have the permission of the instructor).

Admission forms are available in the department office in Stone Building. Admission should normally be sought during the second semester of the sophomore year.
