An advisor could be a professor who you have really enjoyed. You may also check with the department of your major for available advisors. Make an appointment to meet with them and see how your discussion goes. Ask them what excites them about their field. If this person seems to be able to meet your expectations, ask them to be your advisor. You will need to have them sign the Advisor Change form found in the Registrar's office or online. This form may also be used to declare your major.
As you plan your class schedule it will be important to understand the registration policies and deadlines. Check out the Registrar's Office website for exact dates. For additional information, you may contact the appropriate person in the Registrar's Office.

We can recommend several steps to help you be successful in your studies. Check them out.
When you begin college you have a number of choices to make and it is very easy to take on more than you can handle. Just like it is important to eat a balanced diet, the activities in which you participate need to reflect balance as well. Remember, college is about a complete educational experience which includes your learning in the classroom as well as key activities and relationships outside the classroom. However, too much of either does not reflect a healthy lifestyle.
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) exists to help you work through some of these decisions related to your coursework. The ARC offers tutoring and various workshops throughout the year on such subjects as test taking strategies and time management.
Health and Counseling Services is available to help with many of your health concerns and questions.
One of the hallmarks of an education at George Fox University is the opportunity to serve others. This is a routine part of the undergraduate experience. After all, part of our institutional mission is to participate "responsibly in our world's concerns." For more information visit the Campus Ministries page.
