Students will be eligible to declare the JAMS MAJOR or MINOR without completing an admissions appeal if they meet all of the following criteria:
- They have completed JAMS 101 and 201 with at least a 2.50 GPA in the two courses.
- They have an overall GPA of at least 2.50.
- They have at least 24 credits on their transcript, excluding credits obtained through examinations (such as CLEP and AP credits) and retroactive foreign-language credits. These 24 credits must include at least 12 credits taken in residence at UWM unless the applicant has completed a bachelor’s degree and is seeking an additional major or degree.
Students who meet the listed criteria should contact the JAMS office at 229-4436 or firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be assigned a JAMS advisor and schedule a meeting to complete the declaration process. The JAMS department does not declare new majors/minors during the week before classes begin in the fall or spring semesters or during the first two weeks of those semesters.
