Why do I have a primary program of study?

Students have a primary program of study for data purposes including reporting. The “primary” program of study is the one where policies are applied. By default this is the first program of study on each academic record to be created in Workday for a student, but it may be changed.  The student’s primary program of study defaults upon matriculation and the program must be able to stand alone to be “primary.” This isn’t meant to signify importance, but will drive various processes in Workday.
