Majors & Minors Fair 2014AARC Card


Welcome to the Exploratory Program! We know that choosing a major can be a stressful process, but the Academic Advising & Retention Center (AARC) can help. We are centrally located on campus in Downing Student Union, and we are also the central hub of advising. Whether you need assistance choosing classes, want more information on a particular major, or are having an issue and you are not sure where to go, our staff is here to help you. Do not hesitate to email us, call us, or even stop by our office to set up an appointment to speak with your academic advisor.

Exploring major options before making an educated decision can greatly impact your time here at WKU. Many students enter college as Exploratory students. Out of those who enter with a chosen major, up to 80% are still unsure of their choice. Did you know that more than 60% of students change their major at least one time?
