As an undeclared student, Advising and Academic Services in UH-380 is your university department until you declare a major. Advisors are there to help with your academic progress and to give you alternatives and hints on possible majors based on your interests.

How to Declare Your Major

Once you know what you want to major in, submit a Change of Major through your MyCoyote Student Center. Please view the Change of Major/Minor Guide. There will be a $6 fee for the Change of Major. 

Roadmaps

Academic Advising

During the advising meetings:

  • We encourage you to read the current CSUSB Bulletin of Courses (catalog) to get information about the university, its majors and related career opportunities.

  • We help you to make a list of majors in which they are interested and provide contact information. During those meetings students are encouraged to inquire about academic requirements, career opportunities, possible scholarships and additional programs associated with the major.

  • We encourage them to also schedule an appointment with the Career Center to take a personality and/or interest assessment and discuss majors and careers of interest. 

  • Help you to understand your PAWS Report (Program Advising Worksheet for Students).

  • Monitors how long you are listed as undeclared. Your goal is to declare your major by the time you earn 60 semester units (junior status). Registration holds are placed until they declare a major.

  • Help you become familiar with academic support resources and services.

  • Your professors are another great source of information. Stop by during their office hours and talk with them about topics and majors.
