Deciding on a major is a process that unfolds during your first two years of college. About 30 percent of incoming freshmen begin as undecided students.
It is best to declare a major by 60 credits earned or before first semester junior year. Majors range from 36-120 credits. The larger majors (engineering, education) require an earlier decision than smaller credit majors.
When you declare and how many credits you have earned toward a major will determine the semester you are able to graduate. Declaring earlier will give you the best chance at graduation in four years.
The Academic Advising Center has professional advisors to help you through the process of exploring and deciding upon a major.
