Exploring Degree Programs

Undecided/Exploring Degree Programs Advising
How do you build a degree program that's the best fit for you? By working with a specialized advisor within the Student Success Centre! Exploratory advisors have knowledge of UCalgary's undergraduate degree programs. We'll help you find the program that aligns with your skills, interests and goals.

Exploring Degree Programs

Most students will make changes to their program over the course of their academic career. Changing a program may involve switching faculties, changing a major within your faculty, adding a minor, second major, or embedded certificate.

Undecided/Exploring Degree Program Advising is open to students from all faculties and Open Studies. It may be right for you if you:

  • Are an undeclared student looking to choose a major
  • Aren't admitted to your major of choice
  • Aren't enjoying your current major
  • Aren't doing well academically in current major
  • Want to add more to your degree

Looking for Faculty advising? Here's a list of advising offices.
