University Exploration (EXP) is designed to assist incoming and current Ohio State students who are undecided on their major. Approximately twenty percent of the incoming student population each year enrolls through EXP. Students identify themselves as undecided for a multitude of reasons; however, EXP advisors typically serve three types of undecided students: those who want to learn about all 170+ majors offered at Ohio State, those who have narrowed their options to a few areas but want to take some time to confirm their interests, and those who have decided on a major but have not yet met the entrance requirements. If this student sounds familiar to you, then you have come to the right place!
In addition to working with first-year undecided students, EXP also assists current
re-deciding students. College is a time of great change and development, so it is common for students to begin their academic career in one discipline but decide to switch paths and seek other opportunities. EXP advisors work to help Ohio State students find majors that align with their interests, abilities, values, and goals.
