Many of you may not have declared a major yet, and that is okay. It may seem harder to plan what classes you’ll want to take for next fall when you are unsure of your degree, but that’s when you can focus on your general education requirements. If you have a major declared, it is a little easier to figure out your schedule. Here are some tips to help you during this tough time:
1. Check to see if your college has a “4 Year Plan”. If so, this may help you spread out your general education and degree required courses throughout the fall and spring semesters of the next 3 years.
2. Talk to a college adviser. They are usually very informative and helpful. Especially talk to someone that is knowledgeable about what you are thinking about majoring in.
3. Map it out! Take a look at the courses offered and how many students are already registered for that class. Create sample schedules for your desired courses. Create extra back up plans in case the classes are all filled up.
