Is your major correct in ATHENA?

To meet with an Orientation advisor specializing in your field of study, make sure your major is correct in Athena. To check or change your major:

  • In Athena > Student Records > My Programs
  • Add the new major first then delete the old major.
  • Choose the “Intended-” version of a major if one is listed. 
    • Declare "intended" for all Terry and Grady majors.
  • It is OK to be Unspecified! The Exploratory Center advises Unspecified students.
If you have more than one major:
  • You will only meet with one advisor for orientation.  Email Kellee Green if you have a preference for which major you wish to be advised.  Generally, the priority for advising is:
