Admission Requirements

Admission to the History Department is competitive and limited. Admission is based on a student's current GPA and completion of the pre-major requirements for history. The Department may require students to submit additional materials to the History Admissions Committee.

New freshmen admitted to USU in good standing qualify for admission to the History Department as pre-majors.

Students may apply for major status upon completion of a minimum of 30 credits, including the pre-major requirements, while maintaining a 2.5 cumulative GPA. History majors must maintain a minimum overall GPA in order to remain in good standing in the History Department. Students whose GPA drops below 2.75 will be placed on probation and may be dropped from the major if their grades do not improve.
