First Steps


If you are Undecided on your major choice and would like to correspond with an Explore advisor, you have two options. 

For students that are not ready to officially change their major to Undecided but would still like to learn more about UGA's major exploration resources, the Exploratory Center offers Explore Consultations with Explore Advisors. 

During a consultation appointment, one of our Explore Advisors will meet with you to discuss majors that align with your interests and skills. If you would like to schedule a consultation appointment, please complete this referral form to receive more information.  

For students that are ready to officially change their major to Undecided to meet with an Explore Advisor for a full academic advising appointment, you can do so on Athena using the instructions at the bottom of the page. Please also fill out the referral form or email
