  • A gated major means that your declared major may require either a minimum GPA requirement, completed prerequisite courses, or both to be eligible for admission into the program. 5 of the 6 of our Wellstar majors are gated (All except for Integrated Health Science). Be sure to meet with an advisor every semester to determine what program requirements you must meet if your major is gated, what courses you should complete each semester, and ensure you remain on track for graduation. 

  • Some majors require either a minimum GPA requirement, completed prerequisite courses, or both to be eligible for admission into the program. Some also require that students complete an application. Once a student meets the program admission requirements and is accepted into the program, they will drop the “interest” label.
