When the time is right, you’ll make a formal decision about your intended major. This is an administrative step that places you with discipline-specific advisors and puts you on the path to being admitted to your major.

You’ll be ready. You will have completed a personal inventory, had a chance to speak with professors, advisors, and students in various majors, and hopefully asked a lot of questions.

If you’re worried it’s still not the right choice, that’s okay. You aren’t locked into your first choice. Or even your second choice. At universities across the country, more than half of all undergraduate students will change their major at least once before graduation. The important thing to remember is to keep the lines of communication open. Keep talking with your advisor and never stop learning.
