Do I have to choose a major right away?

Career exploration can be incorporated into your first semester in college. However, being indecisive regarding your major can increase the amount of time it takes to graduate. For example, if you are interested in a career and technical education program that has "fall only" entry or sequenced courses, you might have to wait to begin your studies. If your basic skills are not college level, your time to degree completion may be extended due to necessary developmental coursework.

On the positive side, if you do spend more time enrolled because of career exploration and major indecision, there is no more economical place to do so than a community college. If you are undecided, it would be advisable to take a course such as freshman seminar online which features a section devoted to careers. Utilize the services provided at the college you are attending and put career exploration at the top of your priority list!
