Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.
Because some students may be unsure of their major when they enroll at Johnson & Wales University, the Undeclared option allows them to pursue a basic business and general studies program and, within their first year, choose a major from a number of business and hospitality programs. Students who begin their studies in the Undeclared program earn a bachelor of science degree at the end of four years of study.
All students enrolled in the Undeclared program pursue the following program of study for the first year. Students must declare a major no later than the third term of study.
