How to Prepare

Before you arrive at the Fair there are some things you can do to prepare so that you have a productive experience.

If you're unsure about how to match your interests to majors, you might want to start by taking the Holland Code Quiz. Pick one up in our office in Bear Down Gym.

Once you know your Holland Code you can explore Degree Search. It offers the opportunity to search by interest area and types of majors. There you will find information on course requirements, career opportunities, and more.

When you arrive at the Fair there will be a list of questions handed to you. These are intended to help you have a conversation with advisors about your potential interests. The questions are listed below.

Top 10 Questions to ask Advisors about Majors

  • What would I learn about when studying this major?
  • How do I declare this major?
    • Is there a minimum GPA required to declare the major?  
    • Does having this GPA guarantee admission into the major?
  • How many units do I take for the major?
    • What are the required courses?
  • Do I need to declare the major before I can take these courses?
