    Which school is this? I know at my institution, all freshmen start out in either the Honors or University College and then go on to their major college after their first year. So a freshman at my school who wants to be a geologist would start out in University College, take some gen eds as well as intro classes for the presumed major, and then move onto the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy (my school's college of geology) when they're a sophomore.

    Its Texas State University and I applied at as a transfer with less than 30 hours. So, i'm not exactly sure whats going on since the decision had been made a few days ago

    it means you were not placed into the major, probably because they thought you were a "typical" (60 hours) transfer, and they corrected it once they realized you were a 1st year transfer into sophomore year. You'll have to prove yourself in Micro, Macro, English composition, stats, and calc, like everyone else...

    Has it occurred to you to call the college and ask them? You need a definitive answer for this question, not random guesses

    I've called, and all I was told was that my application to their college of business as denied. My application for the university is still under review
