80% of college students change their major at least once but changing majors multiple times can delay graduation. Although UAH allows students to declare a major at any point in their college career, it’s important that you make a good decision as early as possible. This timeline is a good guide for your first three semesters as an exploratory student at UAH. Semester 1 Enroll in FYE 101G Review the UAH CATALOG to see the list of undergraduate degree programs and select your top 3 favorites. Complete FOCUS2 and compare the results with your 3 favorite degree programs. Explore FOCUS2 resources such as “What can I do with a major in...” to see what types of career opportunities are associated with your favorite majors. Meet with your exploratory advisor to discuss majors and plan for the next semester. Semester 2 Meet with Career Services to explore careers associated with majors of interest. Continue Charger Foundations courses. Attend Career Fair (fall and spring semesters) to connect with employers and start networking. Join student organizations related to your interests. Meet with your exploratory advisor. If you have identified a college of interest, Exploratory Advising will help with the transition to your new college. Semester 3 Complete Charger Foundations classes. If you’re ready, declare your major and schedule an appointment with your new college’s advisor. Schedule an appointment with Career Services to discuss internship and co-op opportunities in your major. If you are still unsure about your major, talk with your exploratory advisor about the option of a double major or minors/concentrations.
