What's Your Major?
Finding a major can be tough.
That's why we created the College Major Assessment. In 15-minutes, the program will recommend your best-fit majors that match your academic achievement, aptitude, unique interests, and preferences.
"I was undecided what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. After completing the assessment, I was able to find my list of majors to talk with my advisor. We were able to sign up for classes, found a student group to join, and discussed what I needed to do to graduate in 4 years."

For Colleges & Universities
Colleges face three major problems: recruiting best-fit students, retaining them, and graduating them on time. Using web-based assessment technology and artificial intelligence, MyMajors matches students to their best-fit majors at your college. The result is that students engaging in the right majors on your campus enroll, persist, and graduate in four-years at up to 22% higher rates than the national average.
We are not a traditional assessment.
The customized program leverages an algorithm, backed by the NSF, to match students to your specific majors. Students can learn about your unique programs, career outcomes, and connect with resources on campus. Faculty and staff can be notified as students complete the program and alerted with key data to help students persist on campus.
MyMajors can make an immediate impact in admissions, orientation, first-year advising, changing majors, career services, and retention and graduation initiatives.
