Know Your Major and Which Academic School It Belongs To
Before scheduling your appointment, make sure you know:
- Your declared major. Your major is listed in your student center in your MyCSN Account.
What school handles your major. There are Counselors in each of the 5 Academic Schools and also Health Program Advisors in the School of Health Sciences. If you do not know which School your major is housed in, please visit our Academics Page to find the school where your major is housed.
It is important for students to meet with the appropriate Counselor in order to receive accurate guidance, avoid taking unnecessary course(s) which may result in excess credit fees, and to ensure timely graduation from CSN.
Changing Your Major?
If changing a major, students should schedule an appointment with the Counselor for the new major. To change from one program of study or major to another, including from personal-enrichment/non-degree seeking to degree-seeking, and vice versa, students must do so online from their MyCSN portal by following these instructions.
Please note: Counselors cannot change majors for any student. Students must do this themselves.
