Advising Services for Undecided Majors
The Advising, Counseling & Testing Services department provides academic advising services to undeclared students, including undeclared transfer students, and students transitioning between majors.
What does it mean to be Undeclared?
- If you are entering the University without a specific field of study, you are classified as Undeclared until you officially choose a major. However, you're not alone. At MSSU about 60% of students are Undeclared in any given semester. As a student who has not yet declared a major, you will have the opportunity to explore various academic and career options. For academic advising, visit the University Advising Center.
Do I need to decide on a major right away?
What other help is there to give me ideas for my major?
- No. Because all students entering the University must meet General Education Program requirements regardless of major, it is appropriate to concentrate on the completion of those requirements before committing to a specific major. You have time to enroll in courses in several disciplines, which allows you to make a more informed judgment about career decisions. Academic advisors have a broad working experience with the requirements for majors and offer assistance as you search for the education choice best suited to your needs.
