    The Exploratory program in Undergraduate Studies is designed for students like you who have not declared a major and want to investigate the many degree-granting programs offered at Kent State University. The Exploratory Advising Center has professionally trained academic advisors to assist you to actively explore and identify the major that best matches your career goals. Exploring demands action, and Undergraduate Studies has an outstanding Exploration Plan to guide you to academic and major success. Our advisors are prepared to guide you through an innovative process to learn about yourself and match that understanding to career and life goals. The process is important because all students must declare a degree-granting major by the time they earn 45 Kent State credit hours - approximately three semesters of coursework.

    Academic advising at Kent State University supports the teaching and learning mission of the University by helping students understand the value of achieving their educational goals. Advising is an on-going partnership among students, advisors and the University community.
