The mission of the Center for Exploring Majors is to provide academic services that enhance the connection between students and the university. To meet the needs of our ever-changing students, we strive to be knowledgeable, collaborative, and student-centered in all that we do. 

As academic advisors and classroom instructors, we support the university’s mission to help students live wisely and to develop and achieve their personal, educational, and life goals.  Creating a diverse and welcoming environment is also paramount to our work. 

Finally, we aim to serve as a resource to others in the university community and promote the importance of academic advising as a vital component of a student’s university experience.

We advise:

  • students who choose not to declare a major when they enroll at the University
  • students classified as non-degree seeking 

Students may choose an advisor or have one assigned to them.

We help students:

  • Explore academic interests and determine an appropriate major
  • Design a program of study, meeting individual interests and needs
  • Map out students’ schedules and prepare for registration
  • Monitor students’ academic progress
  • Clarify students’ educational and life goals
  • Find activities and opportunities to enhance students’ academic experience
  • Develop an action plan, if students are placed on probation
