Undecided? Let Us Help

In a world full of endless possibilities, being an undecided major is not a roadblock but a gateway to exploration and personal growth. At the College of Interdisciplinary Studies, we understand that the path to finding your passion is as unique as you are. That's why we champion the flexibility that comes with being undecided, encouraging students to immerse themselves in a diverse range of subjects and experiences.

Here, curiosity is not only welcomed but celebrated, and the College of Interdisciplinary Studies provides the perfect canvas for you to paint the masterpiece of your academic journey. So, whether you're still discovering your interests or have a multitude of passions, join us in embracing the liberating power of uncertainty and charting a course that's uniquely yours.

Help picking your courses

Did you know that many courses are accepted for a variety of majors? This is especially true during your first semester. We will help you find "safe" courses—ones that won't waste your time or money—while you are exploring your academic options. But be careful. The longer you stay undecided the more courses you'll take that are unnecessary for your final major. Your assigned Advisor will help you choose these courses.

Help with transferring from other colleges or universities

Transferring to a university may seem complicated. We can help you with that process.
