Undecided

If you haven’t selected a major by the time you apply, you’ll have the guidance of the Division of University Studies and up to two years to declare a major.

The Division of University Studies (DUS) is the academic home for undeclared students and students in transition between majors. At the Ambler Campus, the Office of Academic Advising and Student Success works in conjunction with DUS to advise undeclared students. We are dedicated to helping you explore thoughtfully and productively, declare a major that's right for you. We do this using a variety of tools, starting with the capacity to spend one-on-one time with you as you develop your unique academic and career goals. For questions, please email Kim Cooney, Manager of Student Success & Retention at kimberly.cooney@temple.edu.
