I’m not sure what I want to major in, and that might be a problem at RPI. I know I want to major in the sciences, just not sure what yet. Suppose I go in to RPI with an engineer major, when is too late to switch my major–meaning I’d have to stay longer to complete my major? Do I know what I want my major to be, right from first semester frosh year? Or will I be taking general ed requirements first before even getting to select the courses I need for my major?

In your first semesters, it’s relatively easy to switch between majors and even schools. By taking courses like Calculus I, Chemistry I, General Psychology, and maybe an introduction course to a potential major, you leave yourself with options. You will have an academic adviser and there will be programs to help you make this decision. Don’t worry if you don’t know what you want to study, you will get a feel for that in your first few semesters!
