Advising for Undergraduate Students

Not sure what you want to do?

Undergraduate Studies

Students with undeclared majors may seek exploratory advising through Undergraduate Studies.  As an Undergraduate Studies student, you are expected to be an active participant in the major exploration process. Our goal is to assist you with your transition to the University and to help you choose an academic major consistent with your abilities and career aspirations. The clock is ticking and you must begin the exploration process now to be ready to make an informed decision before you have earned 60 credit hours.
