Starting your college career without a major isn’t a big deal. In fact, 49 percent of Monmouth students are undeclared as freshmen. The Center for Student Success and its advisors—including one who was awarded the Outstanding Advising Certificate of Merit by the National Academic Advising Association—can help you find the program of study that is right for you.
