You do not need to declare a major before you start college. Many students enter college without choosing a major. If you are undecided, take the first year to try a range of classes. Thinking about what you enjoy and careers that interest you should help narrow down your list of potential majors. Although academics and your major are very important to consider when selecting a college, they are not the only factors.

Visiting a college is a great way to get a feel for it. Visit a college before you apply and again after you've been accepted. Try to visit when classes are in session to interact with some of the professors and students. If you cannot experience the college first hand, speak with some of the college's alumni, watch videos that students post online, or explore the college's website. The more you know about the school, the more you know if it’s a right fit for you or not.
