Find your way

Exploratory Advising is a service offered by the Student Success Center that is available to any undergraduate student who would like to explore options.

Exploratory Advising serves all students who are undecided on a major and college. It can also be helpful for students who are unsure about their choice of major.

Exploratory Advisors provide a safe and supportive environment for self- and major-exploration, with the goal of empowering students to make informed and confident decisions about the future.


Appointments can be made here or in person in the first floor north wing of the Library. Call 256.824.2478 for further information.


Start Exploring Now

  • Strong Interest Inventory and FOCUS 2 are available for UAH students wanting to explore their interests and options. 
  • Walk in to take the Strong during SSC business hours. It takes 30 minutes to complete; make a return appointment for a one-hour, in-depth interpretation and discussion  based on your unique interests. 
  • Prefer to work at your own pace? Try FOCUS 2. Log in with your UAH email address and password "chargers." First time users click here. Returning users click here. Feel free to bring ideas or questions about FOCUS 2 to an Exploratory Advisor.


The mission of the Exploratory Advising Program is to enrich the lives of UAH students by providing a place for open dialogue, major exploration based on the strengths and interests of each individual, and assistance determining the best-fit path that will foster success at UAH and beyond.
