Not sure about a major? You’re not alone. Many first-year students start college as Undecided/Undeclared students. And even those who choose a major coming out of high school often end up changing it (at least once) before they graduate.

At WVU you’ll have the guidance and support from advisers to explore majors, create an academic plan and turn your lifelong passion into a successful career.


As you explore your options, the Center for Learning, Advising and Student Success (CLASS) will be your academic home. CLASS advisers will help you narrow your academic and career interests until you find a major that is right for you. From interest profiles to career exploration exercises to the Major Match Fair, the tools you need to advance your career will be at your fingertips.

How to Apply

Simply complete our undergraduate application and choose Undecided/Undeclared as your major. If you decide on a major after you apply, you can complete the Change of Major form to update your selection.
