Undecided/Undeclared Majors

Students often wonder, can I start college without officially declaring a major? Absolutely! Many college students like to keep their options open or change their major.

As an Exploratory Pathway student, academic advisers make sure you have the guidance and support to create an academic plan, discover your passion and then turn it into a major or degree that will lead to a rewarding career!
