Exploratory Students


Undecided about your academic major or career goals? You are not alone. In fact, every year many others enter PennWest Edinboro as exploratory students. The Academic Success Coordinators at PennWest Edinboro are knowledgeable and committed to helping you identify your interests, strengths and goals so you can make the most of your college experience and be well prepared for a rewarding future.

How Edinboro Supports You

We are excited to assist you with navigating toward a successful future. Whether you’re just confused about majors and careers or taking steps toward the major of your choice, rest assured that exploratory status is a very common temporary path for many students of all ages and backgrounds. In fact, it is estimated that 75-85% of college students change their major at some point during their undergraduate careers across the United States (Education Advisory Board, 2016).

The Academic Success Center is committed to assisting you with selecting a degree program that best suits you. Collectively, we can build your network of connections on campus to help you create a plan for graduation and optimal success! We will serve as a resource to guide you on a path toward your personal and professional goals. We are knowledgeable about all of the majors on campus and are connected with various faculty departments across campus as well.
