Can I apply to college without knowing my major?

Hey everyone, I'm a junior and I'm still unsure about what I want to major in. Is it possible to apply to college without declaring a major, or should I figure it out before applying? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Hello! It's completely normal to feel uncertain about your major when applying to college. In fact, many students enter college as undeclared or undecided majors. Most colleges and universities offer the option to apply without declaring a major, so you can explore your interests during your first year or two before deciding on a specific area of study. Some schools even encourage students to take general education courses before declaring a major, so you'll have plenty of time to explore different subjects and find your passion. Just be sure to research each school's policy on undeclared majors, as some may require you to choose a major after a certain amount of time. It's also a good idea to check if the colleges you're interested in have any specific application requirements for certain majors, as this may impact your decision. Ultimately, it's important to remember that you're not alone in this process, and many students change their majors at least once during college. Good luck with your college search!
