Intended School/Program Glitch?

I went to accept my admission offer on the my UW-Madison website, but when I went to accept admission it says that my intended school/college is the "School of Education" and the intended program is "Pre-Secondary Education". I'm looking to major in Political Science, so there is something wrong. Either I filled out the application incorrectly, or there is a glitch.
I am going to call the school tomorrow, but maybe someone can help me out before I embarrass myself because it is supposed to say that or something. I am also wondering that if I put the wrong major in my application, would this effect my admission status?

    The School of Education has both undergrad and grad school students. Possibly you goofed, but it doesn't matter. All freshmen get accepted to the university as a whole and can change their major, school/college at any time. The reason for putting down a proposed major is to assign the most appropriate advisor for SOAR. Go ahead and correct things on the form or call/email to find out how to.
