Abstract

An important decision for a freshman student is a choice of major. If a student changes majors due to a poor initial decision, the student could end up spending more time in college and will likely spend more money for tuition, fees, room, and board. In addition, it is also likely that students in the wrong major initially may have lower grades which may negatively impact scholarships. The reasons for students picking the wrong initial major are varied and in this paper, the authors will look at the various reasons. The authors then propose a novel solution to part of the problem.
