Academic Advising Center
Students who enter college without having chosen a definite major are usually classified as "undeclared" or "undecided." In many instances, undecided students are those who have so many occupational interests that choosing just one area of study is unappealing. Other undecided students choose to wait to declare a major because they have no definite career goal in mind. No matter what scenario describes you, a university campus is the best place to be when you are unsure about your future. If you are considering entering Arkansas Tech University without a definite major in mind, don't feel discouraged. There are more than 50 challenging and exciting academic areas at Arkansas Tech to explore, and there is plenty of time to make a decision. For a list of majors and minors, check out the undergraduate catalog to start exploring!
All undecided students are advised in the Academic Advising Center. When students change their major from undecided to a specific major, they are assigned an academic advisor by the department of their declared major.
All first-time, incoming freshmen complete their first academic advising appointment and register for classes in the Academic Advising Center. After the first registration appointment, freshmen who have declared a major are assigned an academic advisor by the department of their declared major.
Our academic advisors care about your professional development and your successful completion of a degree program. Building a solid relationship with an academic advisor increases your opportunity for success.
