Still Deciding

Many students know they want to pursue their college dream, but are not quite sure yet of their direction. Undecided students can benefit from Columbia College's many programs and general education offerings. This allows you to start moving in a meaningful direction while still exploring ideas for declaring a major.

We can help!

  • Meet with one of our Academic Counselors
  • Check out our Career/Transfer Center & Job Placement Services to access many tools for exploration (Vault, Eureka, Road Trip Nation and more!)
  • Check out our Undecided/General Education Advising Guide.
  • Take a Guidance Class on career exploration or college educational goals!
    • GUIDE 1: Career/Life Planning; 3 units; CSU transferable; GE Area E
    • GUIDE 8: Orientation to College; .0-1 unit, CSU transferable
    • GUIDE 18: Life Skills for Higher Education; 3 units; CSU/UC transferable; GE Area E
