What is Undeclared-Exploring?
Undeclared-Exploring is the designated advising track for students who have not yet declared a major at CSU.
Students who are striving to meet entrance requirements for a competitive major may be admitted to a related Undeclared advising track (such as Undeclared-Business Interest) while they complete pre-requisites and explore their options. The program offerings outlined below apply to these students as well.
Undeclared students account for approximately one-third of each entering class and are well supported for long-term success at CSU.
