When do I need to declare a major?
Within 2 years or 4 semesters. If you need more time, it’s OK. No pressure.

Who will be my advisor?
Your advisor will be assigned to you about one month before you begin college. We will inform you by letter mailed  to your permanent address. You will meet your advisor during the first week of classes. Many of our advisors are listed on the Advising Staff webpage.

What will my schedule look like?
Basically, it will look like any other schedule for a first-year student. New students will take general education courses and courses to explore majors of interest.

How will you help me to explore majors?
Good question! Taking a class in a major is only one way to explore. We will suggest clubs, organizations, or activities that match student’s interests. Many students find volunteer, job or internship opportunities in areas of interest. Summer jobs can also provide some opportunities to explore careers. We also have personality tests, interest surveys, and resources to investigate. Check out our Self-Assessment webpage!
