Declare a Major - Develop a SEP - Maintain Priority Registration

Discover Strategies for Major / Career Exploration and Decision Making

Success by Choice Not Chance

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO DECLARE A MAJOR?

Pending Student Support and Success mandates by Glendale Community College, all new non-exempt college students who wish to maintain their enrollment priority will be required to declare a course of study (major) by the time they complete 15 degree-applicable units or their third semester.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I CAN'T DECIDE ON A MAJOR?

If you are uncertain about or not fully committed to your academic major, sign up for an Undecided / Undeclared Major / Career workshop as the first step in making an informed decision about your course of study and career goal. 

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?

The workshop is required for all undecided students and serves as a gateway to an appointment with a Career Counselor. Review the Career Center Steps to Success section at: http://www.glendale.edu/index.aspx?page=2121

WHO CAN ATTEND?

These workshops are available by reservation to currently enrolled students only and are limited to 12 participants per workshop.

HOW DO I SIGN UP?
      

Undecided workshops are offered throughout the academic year. To access the schedule and register, log into MyGCC | Main Menu | Workshops | Career Workshops. For additional workshop information, including their location, visit the Career Center Events page at: http://www.glendale.edu/index.aspx?page=2127.

WHAT ARE MY OTHER OPTIONS?  

Your other option would be to enroll in either ST DV 125 <Career Planning> or ST DV 145 <Academic and Career Success> class. Both classes address career decision-making strategies and enable students to develop a tentative career plan.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE DECIDED ON A MAJOR?

If you have decided on a major, make sure to meet with an Academic Counselor to develop or update your Student Educational Plan (SEP). Completing a SEP will help you safeguard your access to priority registration as well.
