Exploratory Students

If you are not 100% certain which major is best for you-

That 's ok


The fact is many students do not know what major or career to pursue when they enter college. The average undergraduate may change majors two or three times before graduation. That is why the Undergraduate Advising Center is here - we are your link to the university. As part of the Undergraduate Advising Center, you will have many opportunities to explore your options.

  • Assistance in evaluating majors that are best for you
  • Guidance in course selection and completing core curriculum requirements
  • Career Center Referrals
