TCNJ Alert: Power update: class cancelation, housing, dining, registration

The college has been able to diagnose the cause of the power outage affecting several campus buildings. Repairs are expected to extend through the night and will necessitate us to shut off power to additional buildings. Because of this, the college is cancelling Monday classes after 3:30 p.m. and all classes on Tuesday. Classes will resume Wednesday morning at 8:00 a.m. Administrative offices will remain open.

Pathway to a Major

Through the AMM 99 seminar, exploratory coursework, and individual advisement with the Assistant Dean, Open Option students will work towards transitioning to a major by no later than the end of their sophomore year.

Open Option students will work closely with the Assistant Dean to explore interests early and develop a path toward meeting their academic goals. As part of the collaborative advising relationship, students are expected to seek guidance (as needed) from additional resources such as Department Chairs, the Career Center, and online resources such as the PAWS “what if” report, departmental websites, and the Undergraduate Bulletin.

Students transitioning to a major must adhere to the “Internal Transfer” guidelines provided on each academic department’s website and/or the Undergraduate Bulletin. Please be mindful that programs may be competitive and admission is not guaranteed. Be aware of the process for your desired program: necessary foundation courses, reflective essays, auditions/portfolios, and be mindful of application deadlines.
