FAQ

How do I make an appointment with a Career Counselor?

 The easiest way to make an appointment is to call 434-395-2063. Anyone who answers the phone has access to the calendar and can find an appointment time that works with your schedule. You can also stop by our office in Lancaster G08A.

 

Is there someone who I can talk with about choosing a major?

The Counselors in the University Career Center are here to assist you with assessing your skills, values, interests and limitations. They are also here to help you explore majors and their curriculums, narrow down your choices, and find a major that works for you.

You are also encouraged to speak with faculty, students and alumni about possible majors. Chances are they have either taught or taken courses in the majors you are considering and will be able to provide first hand knowledge about the field.

 

How do I change my major?

To officially change your major, you must complete and file a Change of Major form with the Office of the Registrar. Change of Major forms can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar's website. Please note that you will need to take the Change of Major form to the new Department Chair for his/her signature before submitting the form. Student Athletes must also obtain the signature of the Athletics Academic Support Coordinator before submitting.
