Changing Your Major

Thinking about changing your major?

You are not alone!  According to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 80% of students in the US end up changing their major at least once and on average change their major at least three times over the course of their college career.  If that wasn't enough, over 80% of new students entering college (even those with a declared major) are still uncertain about their major selection and how they are personally connected to the academic program.

Academic advisors in the Office of Academic Advising are here to assist you in the exploration process for majors, careers, or both!  All students are able to utilize the resources available in the Office of Academic Advising, and those in the residence halls even have access to our PAiRs for additional assistance.

So if you are a student who is still searching for that right fit in your major or career choice, or are considering changing your major, utilize these resources from our office:

or contact our office at 319-273-3406 to set up an appointment with one of our advisors.

I was a part of the ELLC for two years, and it was a great environment for me. The ELLC allowed me to explore my options with majors, helped me to create and become a part of the Bender Hall community, and connected me to like-minded students in a fun way.
