Anyone can access videos, websites and online assessments intended to help students find the best major. Many of these resources are biased, under-informed or otherwise inaccurate. Our knowledgeable AEP staff can help students identify quality methods and resources for exploration. Often times, a conversation with an AEP advisor is the best way to learn where to go next, so schedule an appointment or visit our office during drop in advising hours.
