Step #4 - Select a Major and Classes

Selecting your major and registering for classes is a critical step in the process of attending MTSU.

Decide on a Degree/Career Path

Here is a full list of degrees offered at MTSU.

If you are undecided, the  Career Development Center has a number of useful tools to help you determine the best degree for you.  Also, stop by the center and talk to Heather Conrad, the VetSuccess on Campus counselor. She can help you with vocational exploration, assistance in selecting a suitable career/major, as well as job placement assistance, and coordination with local veterans’ employment representatives and training services.

Academic Advising

Your academic advisor will be one of your most important resources at MTSU.

  • If you have decided on your major, you will be assigned an advisor from the department of your major.
  • If you have not decided on a major, you should contact the University College Advising Center at (615) 898-2339. You will be assigned an advisor and can schedule a meeting.


  • Tutoring information can be found on the first floor of the Walker Library or by searching for the department and/or course online.
  • A list of Academic Success Series sessions can be found at: Academic Success Series.

Academic Success Series

1-hour "How To" workshops are held by the University College Advising Center each term and are designed to help you become a successful student.
