The Office for Undeclared Students supports student success by partnering with faculty and staff across campus to help undeclared students explore and engage in their educational and personal purpose. To advance undeclared student success in choosing a major leading to graduation, we collaborate with the following campus partners:
- Academic Departments
- Advising & Evaluations
- Alumni Association
- Associated Students and the Undeclared College Council
- Career Services
- College Assistant Deans
New Student Orientation
Undeclared freshmen are encouraged to participate in the "Undeclared Session" during New Student Orientation. Here you will learn strategies to choose a major, Career Services support during your major exploration process and Fall 2018 class schedule recommendations. Register for New Student Orientation.
Undeclared Student Resources
Upon entering SDSU, all undeclared students should
- Create your Aztec Connection Profile on the Career Services home page
- Complete the free online Type Focus Assessment
- Attend at least one (preferably every) Student Success workshop
- Participate in events by Career Services
- Attend an Undeclared College Council meeting
- Meet with an Adviser at the main Academic Advising Center in SSW 1551
- Meet with Major Advisers in your areas of interest
To maximize student success, we encourage all incoming undeclared freshmen to complete the above during their first year.
For walk-in advising information, see the calendar at the bottom of this page
Important reminder: you must declare a major by the time you complete 70 units. If you are still undeclared at 70+ units earned, a registration hold will be placed on your record until you officially declare your major at the Office of the Registrar.
Undeclared students can increase their likelihood of graduating within four years, if they develop a thoughtful plan in choosing a major by seeking mentoring and advice from a variety of campus resources:
- Main campus advising
- Major advisers
- Career services counselors
- Division of Academic Engagement and Student Achievement. Via walk-in or email.
Thanks to everyone who attended the undeclared sessions at Explore SDSU. A pdf version of the presentation is available here: Explore SDSU presentation
