Should I explore an alternate major in case I am not admitted to my first choice program?

Yes, we encourage all students to choose an alternate major that they may pursue in case they are not admitted to their first choice program, they change their mind about their major, or decide to add a second major. If you are pursuing a competitive program such as the Kelley School of Business or Nursing, it is especially important to include an alternate program into your plans so that you will be prepared if and when you need to change your major. University Division academic advisors are knowledgeable about all academic programs at IUB and can help you choose an alternate major and develop an academic plan that would allow you to make progress towards both a first choice and an alternate major.
