Pre-majors: undergraduate students who request admission into a CNSM major but do not yet met the minimum requirements for a major are considered pre-majors. If you are a pre-major, you will meet with the pre-major advisor.

Fully Declared: undergraduate students who request admission into a CNSM major and meet the minimum requirements for that major are considered to be fully declared in their major. If you are a fully-declared major, you will meet with the major advisor.
