Deciding Student Program

Being Undecided is a Great Decision

The Deciding Student Program (DSP) provides a clear plan for deciding students to select a major and academic degree program, while also exploring a range of related career interests. Our team of Academic and Career Planning Specialists and Design Coaches assist students in defining their educational goals and thinking beyond a major. It’s just one part of a larger picture in designing your life.

The DSP provides an opportunity for students to:

  • Explore different majors through a FOCUS2 assessment
  • Meet with an Academic and Career Planning Specialist to develop your class schedule 
  • Develop a personalized collegiate career plan
  • Connect with the Career Center to understand the links between majors and careers
  • Participate in career exploration and major-focused events and workshops
  • Be automatically enrolled for BGSU 1910, which will introduce you to Life Design and connect you to your Design Coach 

BGSU 1910 is a new class designed to help you explore your passions, develop problem solving skills, and begin to build a meaningful college experience along the way toward life beyond BGSU. You also will enroll in BG Perspective (general education) classes. These classes satisfy core requirements for almost every major at BGSU and will provide you with opportunities to discover potential academic and career paths to go from deciding to decided at BGSU!
