Still exploring your options?

You are not alone! Around 20-50% of students enter college undeclared, and about 75% change their major at least once in their college career.

Being “undecided” places you in the position to explore, investigate, and expand your general knowledge as you plan for your future. This is an opportune time for you to brainstorm and dream of all the possibilities that are available to you. Faculty in each discipline and your “Intro to College Success” instructor can show you tools designed to help you discover how your personality and interests line up with different career paths and academic disciplines.
