WVU to debut college for undeclared majors


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia University is starting a centralized college to help students with undeclared majors.

University College dean Elizabeth Dooley says one goal of the program expected to begin July 1 is to improve WVU's student retention and graduate rates.

WVU says the University College will serve as an "academic hub" for general studies, exploratory and nontraditional students, among others.

About 7,800 WVU students will be served through the college.

The college's ultimate goal is to have students focused on a particular path by their sophomore years.

The college will partner with the Career Services Center, which offers career counseling and career development programs.

Dooley says the college's main hub will be in the Student Services Center in Morgantown.
